Things have been moving very fast since I moved to Salt Lake. I took a course to become a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) so that I could get a job as a CNA while I worked on finding a job where I could utilize my degree. I got a job quickly at Arlington Hills Health Care Facility as a CNA. Working with the elderly was rewarding and exhausting. I discovered rather quickly that I didn't want to be a CNA for long. Although I had toyed with the idea of becoming a nurse, I decided that I didn't really want to go through that much more school. So, I kept looking for a job in my field and applied at the Utah Food Bank for their Agency Relations Coordinator position. The two interviews went well and I was hired. My first day on the job at the Utah Food Bank was December 23rd and my last day at Arlington Hills was Christmas. I am grateful to have had the experience of working as a CNA and am very grateful to have had that source of income while I looked for my "career" job. So far I am loving it at the Utah Food Bank and feel like the job is a very good fit for me.
