Back in April I had a job interview for a supervisor promotion at another County Department. It was a really great interview and I felt like I would be a really good fit for what they were looking for. Later that I was talking to my current boss about how well it went and then it hit me, in my heart I knew I wasn't meant for that job. After I talked it over with Jack, I made the decision to email the interviewers and ask for them to remove my name from consideration. I explained that I was truly grateful for the opportunity and although I knew I would do a good job for them my heart wanted to stay in my current department. They were grateful for my honestly and understood. They ended up giving the position to my very good friend who was a much better fit for them. I felt so grateful that I listened to my heart and did the right thing. My friend was truly grateful too. Well what comes around goes around, today I was told that our project manager was going to be retiring in October and they have asked my current supervisor to start training immediately to fill her position. They asked me to take over as billing supervisor! Although this is just an interim position until the opening becomes actually available, that's just how working for the government works. I am really excited about this opportunity to learn and grown. I am very excited about my new supervisor and I am excited to help lead the billing team through the next challenges we face! Note to self - when something doesn't feel right in your heart, listen to it, its God speaking to you.
