This may be a long post but i want to give hope to those who are struggling…
Last March I started an assignment through a temp agency with Fedex. It was an 11 month contract but I knew from the beginning that it would not become permanent. I worked hard and loved my job and my manager and coworkers were amazing. I held out hope that there may be a chance that upper management would change their minds and keep all of us but that didn’t happen. They actually cut the contracts of new temps to 6 months. That’s when I realized there was no hope of staying permanently. 2 months before my contract ended I started putting in applications on the Fedex website, Indeed and LinkedIn but nothing. It was just crickets 🦗. Even the agency I was working with didn’t have anything coming up. January 6th my foot doctor put me in a cast which made it very difficult to move around so I had to leave my assignment a couple of weeks early and draw from my short term disability. The cast wasn’t coming off until February 19th so I knew I needed to wait til that time came close before I looked for a job so a week before the cast came off I started the job hunt again. My doctor appointment was on a Wednesday, the very next day I received a phone call from Fedex to come in for an interview March 3rd, then about 20 minutes later I got a call from my recruiter at the temp agency about a new client and she sent me the information and I was hesitant because I really wanted to get on with Fedex but she encouraged me to take the assignment and I could always go to the interview and decide after that. She then calls me back and says the client wants me to start…he was so impressed with my resume that he didn’t even want to interview me, he was ready for me to start ASAP‼️ So I said ok, I’ll do it. Monday I got a call from American Car Center for a warranty specialist and wanted to set up an interview. Well, I started my assignment Thursday as an Administrative assistant with the mechanical department for MATA (Memphis Area Transit Authority) and I knew in my gut that this was the perfect job for me‼️ When I came home from my first day I received a phone call from Fedex for a different position I applied for months ago and I turned it down. I also turned down the interviews for Fedex and American Car Center. I know this job is the perfect fit. This is a temp to perm assignment and I fit right in with my coworkers, they do not care that I have purple hair or piercings and tattoos, it’s 10 minutes from my house and the benefits are even better than FedEx.
I have a tattoo on my wrist with the scripture Jeremiah 29:11 as a reminder that God has a perfect plan for my life and He really showed up and showed out‼️so, I said all of this to say, never give up, hold on to the hope that God is working on your behalf and He has the perfect plan for your life so trust Him and give Him all of your cares and worries and watch Him work‼️
Be blessed and remember to be a blessing to someone else,
