From jobless to Night Manager in three weeks.
I’ve been perplexed over the past couple of years about my daughter, Erin’s, bad luck with jobs.
First, she worked from fifteen for Triple O’s and was very good at her job, eventually being promoted to Shift Supervisor. After about a year she decided to quit because she had a lot of obligations, including early graduation at sixteen. She achieved her early graduation, but was now jobless.
I was always amazed at how easily Erin got interviews. She has a great personality that is warm and inviting and it enabled her to have a great rapport with superiors, coworkers and customers alike.
After some time, Erin was hired at Duke of Dublin Pub and worked there for quite a while. It was obvious she loved the job as she always left for work with a smile on her face and a cheerful attitude. She thrived. Unfortunately, and to her great sadness, the Duke of Dublin ended up having to close its doors and Erin was left jobless.
This seemed to be the start of a string of bad luck. She ended up trying a string of jobs that just didn’t work out for various reasons, and then, there was a prolonged but sporadic dry spell working several short-term, part-time or seasonal jobs.
Finally, about three weeks ago, she was hired part-time at the Quizno’s restaurant and took to the job and the staff immediately. This was the Erin I remember – happy, smiling, cheerful, and constantly talking about work. The true surprise was when her employer offered her the Night Manager position after only a couple of weeks, and she’s rightfully proud and excited.
Way to go Erin! We’re proud of you!
