TBWCYL Day 259 - Book of Job

Yesterday's task was to make a move that would get me closer to the top at my job. I work in the Printing Industry, mainly working on website ordering systems and coordinating the print that is bought off of our sites. I also do some file prep as well and have been doing this job for about 2 of the 4 years I have worked at my company. We are a pretty big consolidation and have around 70 other companies in the USA. This affords me a slight advantage as we get emails of opportunities for new positions at other companies and yesterday I got an email.

Apparently there is a new position available that would still be Dallas based but would require a bit of travel. It is more on the IT side of things and with some training I am sure I could do it, so I contacted the people who posted the job and asked them for more information. To put into perspective how this is kind of big, I have been getting these emails for years and barely ever look at them or see anything that would make me want to leave. But this one does.

I haven't the slightest clue if I could get it but I figured I should try. It could radically change my life but I feel like that might not be a bad thing at the moment. Now I just have to wait; emails must be received and information processed to figure out if I want the job and if they want me. I now have that nervousness that comes with trying not to want something to stop yourself from being disappointed if you don't get it.

That is all,

Newt

Isn't it funny?
You may not WANT the job in the long run, but want the OPTION of making the choice! (I do this ALL the time!)

Best of luck! If you get it or not!
:-)

Very clever title there, sir. I was waiting for a story about how put upon you have been lately by the Almighty, by which I of course mean Diana.

Trinity said...

I thought it a funny biblical reference myself.

Very (potentially) exciting stuff! Keep us posted, Mr. Vaughn, Overlord of All Things Printed.

:) Best of luck!

I agree with f8hasit's comment to a T. Even if you don't want the job, it actually helps in your current job to get the offer. Plus, it's a nice stroke to the ego. And we all love to be stroked.

God, do I have to turn everything into a sexual innuendo?

I don't know whether to say good luck or not. So I will just say that I love you a bit more for that brilliant, brilliant pun. And that I love Lola for her seedy comment. Let us know how it goes, my froggy friend.

lol @ AD's comment! And Overlord of All Things Printed has a classy ring to it ... you should put that on your CV for sure!

Good luck Trinity, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you x
