Well, here is a letter that I recently received from a Career Coaching and Resume Revision client and I must say that I appreciate the message and tone of the letter. When we spoke, I gave the client options based on desired career interests but I also advised that there might be reason to stick around and learn and grow in their current work environment.

 

Here’s an update almost a year later:

 

“Hi Joey,

You crossed my mind a couple times within the past few months. I just wanted to reach out and give you an update!

I have actually been enjoying my job!!! Yes, this is the SAME job we’ve met about. Lol. I guess along the way, I decided to embrace the time that I’m here and make the most of it. I saw that a lot of me was being dealt with while working here, so I just decided to embrace it and…I have definitley grown. You were right: I have been learning much about Humility. I’ve also been seeing the benefits of serving. My attitude has been put in check many times. And my perceptions of things has been challenged more than I can say. I have been learning how to deal with and handle people in varying circumstances/situations. I’ve been learning to be more comfortable in social situations. I’ve become a bit more polished professionally. One thing that I’m very happy about is that I have become more emotionally stable and mature. I’m learning to be the same way every day…all day. I’m learning to not be (so) judgmental and/or harsh, but to administer grace to people… I’m just learning a lot. I am being developed and I have been loving it.

Now, instead of breaking down and wanting to throw the copy machine through the window, I have been embracing the tough moments, the undesireable moments, etc. and I’m learning to get through them- with a great attitude! Yaaay! I never thought I’d see the day!

So… I’m glad I stayed here. My boss has seen me come a long way, and we are getting along on a more consistent basis now – (because I ain’t acting crazy)! Lol.

So, other than the update, I just wanted to thank you for taking out the time to meet, sit and talk with me when you did. 

*Happy Career Coaching Client*”

 

I’m always excited to see someone happy in their job. Even if it means sticking it out in one that they initially aren’t so sure about.

Do you have a similar story of a time where you wound up loving a job you initially didn’t like? When did you realize that something changed?
