About four weeks ago I started a new job in our new home town. I have not been enjoying my new position so I have been on the look out for new job opportunities. Nothing had been presenting itself so I took matters into my own hands. Being that I haven't been able to do too much I sat at the computer and on Wednesday I sent out 25 resumes to different medical specialists around town (I have 10 years expereince in the medical industry). I also sent my resume to three local saddleries because of my passion for ponies but also three years ago I left an awesome job (due to my husband being posted so we moved 2000km north) working at a saddlery/feed store. I was very sad to leave and have been trying to get back into 'horse world' every since. I prefer working in a store than at a barn - I'm a princess and enjoy the cooling in summer and heating in winter :o)

Anyway I sent out 25 resumes and recieved about 5 calls from specialists with the offers of employment but a lot of them were as their typists and I don't really enjoy that sort of work, I want to talk to people! I had a phone call from the local feed/saddlery store with the offer of weekend work which I was going to go in and have a chat to them about but then Horseland rang me and we organised an interview for this morning. We had a chat and they offered me a casual position!!!!!!!! TO START MONDAY!!!!!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!

I have just informed my current employer who weren't happy but they took it well. They have asked if I can still work next week so of course I said yes. I still have to get the all clear from my doctor with my foot. I informed Horseland that I couldn't start for a week and they were fine with that.

BACK IN THE HORSE INDUSTRY!!!!!!!!! Just wait Sam is going to be inundated with new gear! I will have to be very strong!

Congrats! Made sure you don't spend your whole income on presents for Sam - I'd be tempted in your position!

Congrats! And my thoughts exactly Kate -- I would probably end up owing the store money on pay day instead of the other way around!

Haha, I hardly need to comment after Kate and Marissa. I doubt I could work at a horse store. I'd go into debt.
