In my field of work, it’s very uncommon and untraditional to not sign your contract, even if you’re looking for different work. I tried to find a job last year after I signed a contract and didn’t have any luck. That was not surprising considering I was basically telling the universe I didn’t want a new job since I signed a contract for the old job. This year when I got my contract, I immediately knew I wasn’t going to sign it. The week before I was supposed to turn it in and directly after, I kept getting crazy amounts of synchronicity happening and signs telling me I was in alignment. I genuinely did not feel nervous about finding a new job because I knew if I could release resistance and get into the state of allowing, it would happen when I needed it to.
Anyways, last month I applied for a job. It wasn’t quite what I wanted, but figured I’d try. I followed up and didn’t hear anything so I figured it just wasn’t the one for me. Well last Monday, I decided I would take Friday off of work. I thought “Wouldn’t it be nice if I had an interview on Friday at a new business since I already have the day off? That would make it so easy! ” Last Tuesday, I read an affirmation on Facebook that said “Thank you for the good news coming to me today”. A short while after, I got a phone call from the business I had applied to one month ago! That is also rare to hear back that much later in my field.
I called back twice and no answer. I didn’t get stressed out. I emailed on Thursday stating the times I could talk, and they immediately emailed back telling me what time to call. When I called, they informed me they were completing a phone screen to see if an interview would be worth it. During the phone call, I imagined them asking me to come for an interview after, and they did. She asked when I was available and I mentioned my personal day the next day so she asked me to come in at 8 am. I visualized myself getting the job and them offering it to me on the spot. That is also extremely rare as typically these businesses screenings and interviews go through a large pool of candidates. After an hour interview, I was offered the job on the spot!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Within five days I went from no leads, no job offers, nothing, to having a job. Did I mention the basic description of the job changed into something I really did want from something previously when I applied that wasn’t exactly what I wanted? Also, it’s going to basically give me a 33% raise from what I was making at my old job.
The strategies I used for this job were to not stress out about not having a job before resigning, visualization, “wouldn’t it be nice”, and feeling good and happy for the majority of the week. Trust me, I was nervous for the interview as far as talking back and forth but I was still calm which allowed me to be myself.
I also specifically remember thinking when I went in for the interview that either way this goes it will be a good experience whether I get the job or not and I’ll be thankful no matter what happens. That may not work for some people but I really have to do that. I’m one of those that can easily get caught up in “needing” which causes me to not have good feelings, versus wanting/knowing which causes me to have good feelings, so I release my resistance in that way.
Looking back now and knowing what I know about the company, there was also some divine timing that needed to happen. I couldn’t get the job I wanted a month ago because the company wasn’t up to pace yet which is why they posted for a slightly different job, the one I didn’t really want. So I needed to let them have that time to do what they needed to do for me to get this incredible offer!
