A little more info!

I received another offer yesterday. I was a little overwhelmed. Both offers were great opportunities and I felt sick to my stomach. I am happy with my decision but it was soooo hard to make it. I really hope I made the right decision.

I received the following email from the recruiter of the second offer:


I wanted to thank you for working with XXX Corporation regarding the Program Support Assistant position. I also thought you may like to hear that some of the feedback from your interview was very positive. The group felt that you were very professional & confident in your abilities, that you answered their questions clearly and that you appeared to be very motivated. Donovan specifically stated that you were one of the best candidates he had seen in the past few years.

I thought it may be nice to hear that you did such an excellent job on your interview. Best of luck in your new position.

Technical Recruiter
XXX Corporation "

Talk about a major stroke to the ego!

The new job is with a small company. The owners have been working out of their house here in Holly Springs for the past 4 years. The company is the primary distributor for a Swiss made liquid handling workstation. So basically they sell lab automation systems and life science products to bio-medical research and medical diagnostic facilities.

They acquired the warranty, service and maintenance side of the business recently. Thus the need to move into a commercial space and my position. My official title is Customer Service Rep. But I will also assist with sales and Marketing, all admin. aspects, creating product databases from scratch, you name it I will do it. This is a perfect job for me. Learning to run a small business. I am very excited.

While picking up my employment packet, I was speaking with the owner, Mrs. Medders, and she asked me if Mr. Medders spoke to me about the amount of responses they received for the posting? I said no. They received over 300 resumes. OMG my mouth dropped. This shows the sign of the times. I am very BLESSED.
