New Job

I have a new job as part-time secretary for Peters Creek Presbyterian church. My sister goes to that church and found out that the person who had the job wasn't working out so they were looking to hire someone. She was interested in the job but not full-time so asked if I would like to share the position with her. Since I was getting so few hours at the Loft I thought it would be a good idea. We went for the interview together and I was a little nervous because I have absolutely no secretarial experience at all. I am teachable so I thought that I would do alright in the job, but if they delved into my experience I would be sorely lacking. As it turned out it didn't matter. They explained what the job entailed and asked when we could start. It was pretty obvious that they really, really wanted Bev (who is highly experienced) to take the job and if they had to take me then it was worth the risk. One area that I expect to excel in is answering the phone. I do have a lot of experience in that area and my sister Marilyn said that I have a smile in my voice. ;-)

We worked together for a couple of hours before I left on vacation, but my real first day is on Tuesday. Pray for me. I will need it.

By the way, I am still working at the Loft part-time. I can't give up the discounts and it is fun.
