It’s back. The possibility. The possibilities.
I’ve thought long and hard about this one.
People try to dissuade me from pursuing this. And yet.
Today, after using my small but growing network, I sent an email with my resume attached to pursue the possibility of part time work with mywebgrocer.com. My contacts gave me the name of who to write. I did. Today. Before lunch. By 2pm, my phone had wrung. I was just about to take a nap. I was surprised. And yet I wasn’t.
That’s why I had to be sure I wanted to pursue this. I felt there was a good chance I’d get a call. Not just because I had help getting my foot in the door, but becuase I’m well qualified.
So, I talked with the lovely woman from HR who had been directed to follow up by the EVP I had written. I was a little dismayed to talk to HR and not someone deeper in the organization, but it does show the company has a process and it likely works with efficiency. I like that.
I admit I’m a bit rusty discussing my career from 6 years ago. All in all, I think I did well. I was myself. I was candid. She will talk with the operations department and see if they want to follow-up some more.
I now am left wondering about the possibility of work. It will mean utter chaos at home. It will mean childcare coverage in the summer. It will also mean a new world of work will open to me. And despite that everyone says I should’t , I really really want to work.
It’s nice to ski during the day, but I don’t do it much. It’s nice to walk outdoors and I would very much miss that. But I feel like I’m ready to try fitting both into my life.
Fingers crossed to learn more and maybe go meet these folks in person.
Am I about to shake up everyone’s life? Let’s hope so!
