Peace of Mind
I woke up this morning feeling so refreshed and happy. It is so amazing how much of a difference a job makes. I just wanted to write a quick post for those who are still searching for jobs. DON'T give up and DON'T be down. I was feeling like maybe there was something wrong with me, the truth is some places want people with more experience or a certain personality that I just did not fit. Keep up hope, you will find something that fits you. That being said, don't settle if you get a bad feeling. I had that happen to me twice. Once I felt like I was settling with the Long Term Care job and I felt uncomfortable with a Physician I met with in a Family Practice last week. My advice would be open your mind to new possibilities. Dig deep into your personality, for me I wanted a job that I would get experience and LEARN. It took me 5 months to find a job, initially I was searching for the perfect Family med or Peds job and when I could not find it I tried to get a shoo-in job. Once I got that position, I realized that I was settling and not happy. After that I learned that even though I have an interest in Family Med and Peds, I should be looking for a job that I should ultimately be learning from. I chose a job that has a lot of promise and opportunity that allows for personal growth. I am very anxious about this position but I know deep down that I am confident in the training I received from PCOM and in my own abilities as a Physician Assistant. I can't wait to start on my new journey!
