Audrey Smith lands the proper position

So as many of you know I joined this human resources groups end of spring beginning of summer 2017. At the end of May I was contacted by a recruiting company for an temp to perm contract. So I was temporarily working for a Real Estate company in Downtown Dallas. However, after working a few months I had still no update on when I was supposed to go permanent. The managers had met with me previously saying I was on route to get hired but they needed to hire one more person before they could on-board me. They ended up hiring 8 different people some who started long after I did with the company.

I was feeling extremely down because I worked hard and some of the markets enjoyed working with me...I felt like I was slowly succeeding but going nowhere and the worst part is they are a great company I just couldn't understand the delay. Well after being pretty sick for a few days and stuck at home I decided to randomly follow up with a Director of Talent Acquisition at a medical recruiting company (prior to my real estate contract). Funny how God's timing is impeccable because he actually had a position available in a part of the company I didn't expect. After scheduling interviews between my current job, I have happily accepted the position and landed!

This medical recruiting incorporates my clinical background with the opportunity to grow in the staffing industry, that will eventually get me into my long term HR goals! I've been frustrated and down most of summer because I felt like while a great company they didn't really want me, but I realized God just temporarily wanted me in that position so I could excel and get hired on for this new position to start my career. I know I was the youngest person in our group but I don't want anyone to feel discouraged, even if your at a job that doesn't feel right that can still be part of your transition to a job field that'll you'll love. I had to share with the group because I didn't get the time to come visit! Don't lose faith!
