Happy holidays all!
The holidays always bring out so many different feelings and reminders. Reminders of where you started from, how far you've grown, or areas you may want to improve in.
This is my first Elpha post and I wanted to introduce myself and be vulnerable in regards to my own personal successes and defeats.
My name is Anna and I am a 28 year old Phoenician. In 2018, I received my Bachelors of Science degree from GCU. Almost immediately after, I began working in recruiting at Uber. After about five years of talent acquisition and entry level HR experience, I was laid off. Two months prior, I had bought my first house.
I went five months without a job.
No income. For five months. After purchasing my first home.
I received a job offer - it's low paying but I have something coming in around the holidays for extra income. And because of that, I'm considered lucky. Because I have a job. Something to pay some expenses. Something to get healthcare benefits from (in a few months once it kicks in). But I am craving more.
More responsibility. More opportunity for career growth. More leaders that inspire and support their teams. More income for the hard work I guarentee.
I am open to new opportunitie, new leads and insights and overall connections. Because at the end of the day, we all gotta stick together and get through these times as one.
