I'm so excited - because today is the one-year anniversary since I was hired as a paralegal!
A year ago today, I received the call that I was chosen for the position I so badly wanted. Read more about that here. I recall the interview quite well, and I was so sure that I wouldn't get it. The attorney I interviewed with (I'm now his paralegal, ha!) told me not to take it personally if I wasn't chosen because he remembered the job hunting process so well and it's never really personal...not really. I left that interview heartbroken and in tears. Well, I waited until I got in my car for the tears to really start! I called my mom and cried. I knew it hadn't gone well, and he didn't want me for the position.
Well, little did little ol' me know! I received the phone call the next week and I accepted the job! It's been a roller coaster of a year, and the agency has been through several changes in such a short amount of time, but I'm loving it! I truly feel as though I'm making a difference in people's lives, and my career has started at the same time. I'm so blessed to be where I am today, and I'm forever grateful for this opportunity. I look forward to what the next few years bring, as I know it will be just as exciting! It's never boring or dull at work, and I can honestly say that I've not once gone to work dreading the day. Working doesn't really feel like 'work', and that is truly special.
