Once upon a time, I had a menial job working for a very large company. I don’t want to name names so I’ll just make something up. Let’s say the company was called “Stationwide.”
So I originally interviewed for a company who did hiring for Stanionwide and they brought me back in for a second interview. After that they said, “Thanks but we don’t like you.” (They didn’t actually say that they didn’t like me but they hired someone else). But a couple weeks later, the position opened back up and I started training. It seemed like fate.
But four weeks later, my assignment was terminated. That was really disappointing. I had never experienced anything like that before. While it wasn’t performance based or because I had done anything wrong, I was done. If you’ve never lost a job like that before, it’s rough.
It’s a sudden decision and is something that, just a month and a half ago, was honestly not on my radar and that I hadn’t been considering.
This spring, I started taking graduate classes at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in their Master of Divinity program. Trinity is located in Deerfield, Illinois which is a suburb of Chicago.
