I’ve got some big news! I got hired by Safeway Corporate! I wanted to work for Safeway when I graduated college and had been applying like crazy when we first moved back here. Now, 2 years later, I finally got hired! It is so crazy, a little nerve-wracking, and very exciting. Safeway is a Fortune 500 company and I finally have my foot in the corporate world. I’m on my first stepping stone to my career! I went over to my parents house last night to tell my family and my sister Courtney said “cool, so you’re going to be a bagger?” Haha thanks for the support Court! No my title is Promotion Specialist in the beverages department…I’ll tell you what I do when I find out…on my first day, which is MONDAY! Yeah, like this coming Monday!The Corporate offices are across the freeway from me, about a 10 minute drive from my house. Not a bad commute, huh?!
I’m so excited for this opportunity and new adventure. I have to thank Mark for continually encouraging me to keep applying, even when I thought I would never be hired and was sick of being turned down for not having enough experience. I would have never kept applying if it weren’t for you.
Here’s to no more receptionist/admin. assistant jobs!
