The Call

I am happy to say that I didn't have to wait the full two week to find out about the job. I was called yesterday and offered a position! 


It's a flex position right now which means I could work anywhere from 0-40 hours a week, it depends on the need at the CDC's and other facilities. However the upside is that they are busy and are always needing supplemental help. I knew that getting a full-time position would be difficult so this is the best way to get my foot in the door with DoD.

Being able to put what I have learned so far in college to use is going to be amazing and once I graduate it will likely continue to open up new opportunities. 

I have to drop off my paperwork today and they will begin my background check and then I will have a physical done, so tentatively I will start around the beginning of February. 

I am really excited for this new adventure!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

  8. Congrats again! I'm sure you are super excited! I've worked 2 on post jobs and was even hired for an additional one that I didn't end up taking, and I really enjoyed it. I think you will, too! The hoops you jump through ahead of time are a pain. (I even had to get a physical, get my blood checked, and a few other seemingly ridiculous things.) Most on post jobs hire people as flex to begin with but you probably will end up working a lot of hours. Just make sure that they do switch you over to full time eventually (paid holidays that way!).
