Weekly Update #12

Big news this week, dear readers!  After over a year of applications and let downs, I finally landed a job!  You’re now reading the blog of an employee of APAC Customer Services and this employee could not be more excited.  On top of finally having an income, this place just seems awesome.  Everyone I’ve talked to so far seems beyond cool and I really feel like I’m going to fit in.

I don’t know the exact details of my position, but I will be working with/for a healthcare company and my calls will mainly be from older people.  I’m super psyched for that part.  I was told during my interviews that it’s important to build a rapport with these older customers and I (and the women who interviewed me) think I’d do very well with that.

Bonus to all of this is that this new job is also an opportunity to meet new people.  I don’t know many people that live in the QC, and those I do know I’m not very close to.  I need to make some friends so I stop sitting in my basement all the time, hanging out with my cats.  I’m not much of a social butterfly, but I do enjoy socializing every once in a while.

I start training on Monday, and the dress code is jeans all week long.  I’m pumped about that, too!  Jeans and I get to sit down instead of do laps around a mall?  Yes please!

I’ve also been doing some crafty things as of late.  I started and am about 3/4 of the way done with a new cross stitch piece.  I want to give that project it’s own blog post that I’ll get written up this weekend for you all, my dear readers.  So stay tuned for that!  And check back early next week for my report on my new job and how much I’m loving it!
