The Rumblings Explained.

You do remember my post from a few days back, the cryptic one rambing on about needing positive vibes about some things that were up in the air? (You know, this one?)

Well, obviously all of the good thoughts paid off, because things are looking good.

A few nights ago, I was talking to Jason about how I wasn't feeling a hundred percent happy with the teaching situation here in London. The schools have been average, the attitudes have been average, and the experiences with dealing with the educational recruitment agencies have also been, you guessed it, average. It hasn't been unbearable, but it hasn't been fantastic either. And it certainly wasn't turning into something I want to do for the next two years whilst living here.

I happened to be skimming a random job website, when I came across a position that was being advertised for educational recruitment: working within a popular job agency which recruits and places primary school teachers. In a nutshell, I'd be having a complete role reversal. They called me back, and yesterday I had a first interview. This afternoon, I had a follow up interview. All in all? I'm still hopeful.

It's the start of a huge change - give me another day and I'll hopefully be able to share a little more information with you. This could be just what I'm looking for.

That sounds amazing! Good for you for trying something new, especially after all your average experiences so far. I hope it all works out!

Audrey said...

Ooh, that sounds wonderful! As someone who's in a less-than-satisfying job situation and looking for that perfect job to become available, I am always happy to hear friends' success stories. Best of luck to you!

Everything crossed for you!

That'd be an interesting change indeed. And even if it turns out average too, 2 years is nothing in the long run. You are in Europe! So see as many places and experience as many different things as you can.

Plus the big bonus? You are not there alone. That'd have sucked even more. :)

You know what? I'm proud of you for not settling. If you're not completely happy, then change, just like you have done. Many people would be too scared to consider such a big change, but hey, you just moved to the other side of the world - you can't get much bigger than that!

Good luck with the interviews and here's hoping it all works out for you. :)

Congrats, that's exciting! I really hope you find something you enjoy and are happy doing. I am freaking out about finding a job come May (graduation) to make some $$ before starting a teaching job (hopefully) in September. Yep, that's a lot of interviews.

Ahhh... now I have the background information. Things make sense now!

Sounds like a great decision. It is NOT worth being miserable about your job for your entire time in London. Way to be proactive!

Kristabella said...

Good for you! Life is too short to be unhappy in your job!

And if it doesn't work out? You'll move on to something way better!
