Sometimes Life Throws You A Curve Ball
Sometimes life makes you wonder if everything is going wrong for a reason. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball without any inclination to warn you. Not to make this into a pity party, but that mostly summed up my life right before I began working at Incept.
I was a full-time college student working a full-time, third shift job (plus a part-time job, as well). I had just moved out of my parents’ house and was trying to be a big girl in the real world. I had moved to a new town to be closer to my college, so I had no friends… yet. Not only was money an issue, but finding time to actually sleep was also becoming more and more difficult.
In the midst of all this, I decided to go to a job fair. Once I got there, the staffing personnel told me all about Incept. I must say, it was love at first sight when I saw the Incept Facebook page. It completely blew my mind that a company was using Facebook and actually posting regularly! The attitudes of the employees floored me, and the work environment (from what I could gather) was so welcoming.
Naturally, when I went in for the interview, my walls were up. However, as soon as I saw the people, I was astonished once again. They not only acted awesome on the internet, they were just as wonderful in person. The first person I met at Incept was Brian, my trainer. He was so much fun to talk with, and so excited about his job, that he got me thrilled to start.
Doing a 180
Since Day 1, I keep meeting new people and making real friends. I have been at Incept for about two months now, and let me tell you I am NEVER leaving. I never thought a job choice could turn things around for me, but my stress level has done a 180. I couldn’t be happier with where I’m at now; I couldn’t be happier that I’m at Incept.
