My career journey
By Cynthia A.
from High Desert, CA
After graduating from school from the pharmacy tech program I went job searching, and it took me two weeks to find a job, because of my ambition and because I visioned myself getting a job.
I should have visioned myself working in a environment where the boss and co-workers were awesome, and your status was based on your hard work. But they were judgmental and if the lead tech didn't like you, as in "kiss her butt" like, then you didn't get the hours. Even if you worked hard and knew more than most people that worked in the pharmacy longer. I think one of my worst points was that I kept saying to myself, "The lead tech doesn't like me, and the pharmacist is mean."
Well, I was depressed that they lowered my hours based on how much business we were making. I thought of myself as a victim and directed my energy towards those emotions.
Then I remembered The Secret, and about my emotions creating my future. I watched the movie repeatedly and got Rhonda's new book The Power and read it constantly. I started to understand what I'd been doing wrong. So I imagined I had a job that I loved in my field, doing IVs and working with great people and an awesome boss. When I woke up every day I would say to myself,
"I am grateful for my job, my boss, and the career god/the universe has chosen for me. I love what I do and I love everybody I work with."
Four weeks later, after applying to countless sites, I saw an ad on monster.com, and it didn't say much, just, "Local oncology office seeking pharmacy tech to make IVs." I faxed my resume right away. I received a call two days later, and had my interview. When I was interviewed, the girl went to the same school I went too and had a teacher I knew about. I had a second interview with the office manager, and even though the interview was short, I knew I had the job!
On a Wednesday they called me and asked me if I was still interested in the job. It was awesome. I'm so grateful I was given a chance to be part of a place where they treat you with respect and the office manager is really great and nice.
I feel so blessed now. It makes me want to cry. =)
