The Puzzle’s Last Piece: A Job

Standard

I’ve been in Denver for a little over two weeks now and everything is falling into place. I’ve been spending lots of time with my family, I’ve made some pretty awesome friends and I even have my own place lined up and will be moving in around December/January. I’ve joined a gym and am seeing fantastic results… who knew that me of all people would thoroughly enjoy punching a bag endlessly for an hour? It looks as though I’m well on my way to accomplishing everything I came out here to do. The only thing missing is a job.

The last time I needed a job, I wrote down exactly what I was looking for and essentially, I got what I wanted. A few days ago, my best friend’s mom contacted me and we spoke a bit about how things were going for me out here. I asked her to pray for me and that I would find a job that would inspire and fulfill me. Here is what I asked for:

“I’m looking for a writing job or a creative type job possibly with a non-profit organization or other company where I can grow and make a difference in people’s lives. I’d like a job that is close to my apartment in DTC and that allows me to make enough so that I can handle all of my bills and still have money to stash away in savings… which, ideally would be AT LEAST $12 an hour. Preferably, I’d like to have a casual work environment (NO BUSINESS SUITS!), a positive, fun group of co-workers who work well as a team and who can get work done while still having a good time and being excited about work. If the company works in the arts or music fields, even better. Ultimately, I want to go home at night knowing that someone’s day was made a little better because of me.

I don’t really want to do receptionist type work because I’m not really huge on being on the phone all day. I’m great at proofreading and editing and I very much love to do that sort of work. I’d also like a job where the boss really genuinely cares about the employees. My last boss was A-MAAAAZING and I would be blessed to find another one like her. I just want to be inspired to go to work and know that my efforts are appreciated. I’m looking for full time work so anywhere from 32-40 hours a week. Because I’ll be doing freelance writing work for my old company back home starting in November, I don’t necessarily need a full 40 hour week but would like to have at least 32 hours. If the job offers benefits too, even better.”

Considering that I’m very open to learning new things, I believe that this job is very much attainable. Hell, if someone was willing to train me, I’d put on a hard hat and go to work in construction. Ultimately, I want to work for a company that cares about the people they serve and who can provide what I need to build my life here.

I’d like to ask my readers to say a little prayer for me. I have no doubts that your prayers helped me out the first time when I got my job back in Los Angeles and I have no doubts that they will help me here. Thanks a ton in advance for your support!

  1. Hi Rachael…glad to hear you are settling in. Looking forward to hearing from you again soon…no real news on Kelly…biopsy was done today, MRI tomorrow. I’ll send a text when we know more. hugs & blessings!

  2. Hi Rachel, I found your blog while searching for positions in the Denver area. Best of luck with your search. I recommend you look at Andrews Hudson’s Job List. It is a wonderful source. The unfortunate thing is that many people know about it so competition can be grand. I’d also look into school systems. Best of luck! I will be in your shoes soon.
