I knew that going back to school would be extremely helpful to me when I got divorced, so that is what I did. I had money from my divorce settlement, but I knew that would not last me for the rest of my life. I decided to go into finance because I wanted to be able to help other people who may not have been as fortunate as I was when the world dropped out of the bottom of my own life. After school, I contacted some recruitment companies in Bristol to see what my best options were.
There was one in particular I liked because of the amount of help and information that was freely given to people who were registered at their company. I liked that I could log on and just peruse the different job listings that mattered to me. I was also fortunate that I could do this, because I know a lot of people don’t have the luxury of bypassing job opportunities until the perfect one comes along. I looked at least twice a week at the job listings after I graduated, and it was about a month later that I found one that really spoke to me.
It was for a non profit agency that helped people get back on their feet. They were in need of a finance manager, and thankfully no experience was needed. I had the proper qualifications because of the degree that I had went for, and I was able to fill out the application for the job on the site. I was so thankful when I was called in for the job interview just a few days later, and there was such a chemistry there from the start. I am so grateful that I had this recruitment agency at my disposal to help me find my dream job of helping others!
