Why I Haven’t Been Posting/I Finally got a Job!

Hello everyone!

Okay I know I’ve been completely a bad blogger and I don’t even want to look back to see how long it has been since I made a post. I know it’s been a long time.

It’s not that I haven’t been reading, I have read a few books since my last post. I got busy with having  job interviews. And as luck would have it…I finally got a job!

I’ve been job searching for quite a while. I graduated in 2010 with my Master of Public Health. I’ve been job searching since then and have been unemployed since February of last year when my fiancee and I moved back home because he found a job here.

So needless to say, I’m super excited. I finally was able to land a job in my field. That being said I’ve been completely lazy the last week or so, trying to enjoy my time off without having to job search. My first day is March 1st. I’ve also been trying to focus on getting the house cleaned because I’m honestly afraid of what state it’s going to be in after we’re both working full time jobs.

As for the state of this blog, I want to say that I’m going to try to keep up with it. I’m going to try to utilize the ability to plan ahead and scheduling post feature of wordpress. I might get behind a bit though, please don’t hate me or give up on me! I think I’m going to need books and book friends to keep my sanity.

Well with that bit out of the way, I wanted to tell you all a bit of what I’ll be doing from what I understand so far. The position was advertised as a Cancer Information Specialist but they told me in the interview that they want to change it to a Health Information Specialist position because they want me to also work with a heart health program. I will be attending coalition meetings, charity walk meetings, organizing expo days, and doing other activities to help under insured or uninsured women to get breast and cervical cancer screenings and provide knowledge about services. I will also be doing the same for heart health issues.

The job involves frequent travel, when I asked in the interview about the travel requirements they said I would be in my office about one day a week, which may be a few hours spread out over the week. During down time I may have a little more time in the office. I’m responsible for a six county region and will also have to travel to a few of our major cities for trainings and statewide meetings.

I’m really exited to get to work with something I’m really interested in and exactly why I went to school. I welcome any advice you may have for those who do frequently travelling with work as this will be my first experience. Thanks and happy reading!
