So I’ve been trying to find a job for months and not having any luck at all (not even getting interviews).

But the beginning of this week first I applied for a volunteer role at an op shop. I got an interview for it on Friday, and I got a position!

And feeling emboldened by that experience that afternoon I was browsing jobs online and found a new posting for a luxury store job, which I thought there was no way I’d get but I’d apply anyway. Surprisingly I had an interview today and got a trial shift next week! This is despite having no retail experience whatsoever so I’m quite surprised!

Update:
I think my trial shift went well, it was intense and I was super tired after. The manager said after I might be needed on Saturday to work again bc it’ll be so busy but I haven’t heard anything since (the trial was on Tuesday). It’s a weird feeling having no idea if I’ll get the job or not...

Regardless I have different interview tomorrow as a receptionist, and I start on Sunday in a new role as an op shop volunteer.
