Not 2018 Anymore
I found a new job. Guess how long it took me from when I applied to when I was offered the position? Fifty-eight hours. Not even three days.
When I started at Goodwill in 2018, I could not find anything resembling a permanent position anywhere. There were a ton of jobs, all temporary and offering less than 20 hours a week. Most were not worth the time it took to fill out the application. So that was my last memory of job hunting.
Goodwill’s philosophy is that we are all easily replaceable. They were correct in 2018. They could not be more wrong now. Same assumption, different reality, now false.
If I had known that it would be so ridiculously easy to find another job, I might have done this months ago. But I did not want to start another job with restrictions. I still have one more PT appointment and the six-week follow-up this upcoming work week, which should release me from all restrictions.
I am looking forward to more training, meeting new people, making more money, and being treated better.
This is the new phase of my life. Then again, perhaps everyone is dealing with a new phase. It is such a different world now that it makes my head spin. I can’t believe how different things are.
