It has been some time since I have last posted. Actually, it has been some time since I have been in my regular schedule of blogging.
Today, I started my new job. I don’t really even know my job title, but I am mainly the assistant to a bookkeeper for a local hotel. I also do other things when needed, such as: helping with any kind of maintenance, checking customers in, and any other task that they may need me for.
This job is something that I have been searching for over the last 2 ½ months. It just about fell in my lap…
When I lost my last job, I had gone down to the LDS Employment Office and filled out an information sheet. I had just finished an Associates Degree in Accounting, so I had been searching for something in bookkeeping or some thing that would get me experience in the accounting field.
Friday the 1st of August, I got a phone call at about 10 or 11 in the morning. She said that she got my info from the LDS Employment Office, and wanted me to come in for an interview. I came in for an interview. The interview went pretty well. However, I started to get a little worried, because things started going like they did in other interviews. They (there was two interviewing me) asked me the same questions that I have been asked in other interviews. Except there was one stood out to me that has been asked to me before. And that was, “How much Quickbooks experience do you have?” I simply said “None, except for what I have done for an assignment in class.” They asked a couple more questions, and then said “I wish you had more Quickbooks experience.” We talked a little bit more, and they told me that I would know by evening on Saturday (Today).
I stopped by my wife’s work (Dairy Queen), and grabbed an ice cream cone. It had not been more than 30 minutes since I had the interview, and got a phone call. I recognized the phone number from earlier, at this point I knew it was either good or bad. The news I received, was not what I expected. I said, “Hello” and was then she asked me when I could come in to work. So, I went in today and got started with my experiences.
