Judgment Day

Yesterday I interviewed for a full-time job.  For the past 17 years I have worked part-time while taking care of my kids full-time. Now I need to get back to work full-time and am finding it difficult to overcome the fact that I haven’t been employed full-time in quite some time.  I have been told over and over again they were concerned that I wouldn’t be able to transition back to full-time employment because I was used to making my own schedule, not only working part-time but working from home as well.

So my prayer today is that I will be judged by the person I am, the accomplishments in my life, which absolutely include my kids, and my life and work skills and not by the number of hours I have logged in an office over the years.

We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

  1. Let us know the outcome, Angela! I am confident you will have an offer letter from them. If not them, someone! You are brilliant!

    • thanks for the vote of confidence. Unlike most employers after an interview she actually called me to tell me she couldn’t hire me. I thought that was very classy of her. She specifically said she was concerned about the part time to full time transition. I am not worried, that was a sacrifice I had to make for my kids and it was well worth it. I will forge ahead happily!
