The Saga Continues, or False start, 5 yard penalty. repeat first down.
Well, for those who have followed my posts regarding my ongoing ordeal, when I last posted, I told you about getting not one, but 2 jobs, after 7 months of unemployment. I've spent one shift at my part time job, training at the local jail. I started my full time job 2 weeks ago. Well, last Wednesday, I got a shock. At the end of the day, the office manager came up to me, and told me that they had decided that I wasn't going to work out. Now, because my licensing has been through the medical board, and I was working for an osteopath, I had to apply for a license through the DO board. Because of this, I wasn't able to actually do anything on my own. I basically was just shadowing the doc. So, I'm left trying to figure out just why they came to this decision. On top of that, I was told that it was nothing that I had done. Geez, that dark cloud doesn't want to leave. But, it's really not a bad thing, because I didn't particularly like the job. In every other job, I've had a place to sit near where the action was, so that I could see when a chart went up, and go see the patient. In this case, my office was quite a bit away from the clinic area, so that wasn't an option, and there wasn't a place for me to sit. Given my arthritis, that made the job a challenge. I was getting through it, but my pin level was high. On a good note, I interviewed today with a company that I was interested in, and I would have interviewed with them even if I were still at the other job. It went very well. I interviewed with the regional manager, who was very impressed, and wants me to interview tomorrow with the director of the clinic where I would be working. So, losing the first job may have been for the best, especially since I was paid through the end of the month.
