Well I did it! I got a job at Dixie State University. Since living here in St. George, I have always secretly and not so secretly wanted to work on campus. I love the College Campus Atmosphere. I also love living a mile away from the University. Granted, nothing will ever compare to my love of being at BYU Idaho, but Dixie State University is a pretty good second place!
For the last three years, I have regularly checked Dixie to see what jobs were available, applying for many and never getting so much as a call for an interview. After leaving my job at Ence Homes, I went full force in trying to get on at Dixie. I applied for 2-3 jobs a day at the University. About a month into trying, I finally got a call for a part time job as an Administrative Assistant for Student Affairs.
The interview process was very relaxed and the Manager hiring, Ginger, made me feel right in place. After a couple of hours of interviewing, I was offered the job! I was ecstatic! I finally got my foot in the door, leading to many future opportunities!
I have been working here for a little over a month and I love it. This job is just what I have been needing. The work atmosphere is very lively. I'm doing something different everyday. I love my boss and advisor, they are so kind and I thoroughly enjoy working for them. And the main reason, I will be able to really grow here. This University offers so many different opportunities for their employees and I'm looking forward to them!
love, hannah jane... and Go TrailBlazers!
