Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and while everyone here at The Job Shop is working really hard to get jobs filled and people placed before we take a couple of days off to enjoy being with our friends and families, we wanted to take a minute and express everything we're grateful for.
This year has been a good one for many of us here at The Job Shop, as we move past much of the trauma and issues we've dealt with for the past several years. We genuinely hope it's been a good one for you!
Here are some of the things we're grateful for this year.
Michelle Mamerto - Temp Manager: "I am thankful for our temps. We have so many amazing people working for us, and I am glad to have gotten to know many of them. I’ve gotten to learn about their families and pets, the experiences that makes each person unique, and the things that bring them happiness. I am grateful to have had moments where we are able to get to know one another. "
Tammy Doss - Finance Manager: "Thankful for being a G-ma!"
Liz Frome - Founder: "I am thankful for how my parents raised me to never give up on my dreams or what I want to achieve in my life. I look back on what I have done in my life and look forward on all the things I want/will be doing and can’t believe all that I have done and know it comes from both my parents. Never give up on what you want to achieve or do; thank you Bob and Irene. "
Jojo Varona - Direct Hire Manager: "I am thankful for continued good health. The last year has been tough for some family members and many friends with health issues, so I’m grateful that Liz has continued to push for us to get healthy in the office."
As for myself, there is too much to be grateful for to list in one place. I am so lucky in so many ways, and have so much privilege in my life. While the last few years have been really hard for everyone, I have also had some really notable milestones happen in my life. My partner and I began settling into Minneapolis, where we moved from the Bay Area even though neither of us had ever lived outside the Bay and we didn't really know anyone here. We bought a house, made some friends, and explored our new city. So if I had to choose one thing to be grateful for, it's being able to go on this grand adventure with someone I love.
Here's to you, and finding your own adventure, and being grateful for every step along the way. Happy Thanksgiving!
