Opportunity has knocked on my door, and I have answered.
My coworker has been training me for the past few years to take over whenever he decided to leave.
That time has come, and it has left a huge career opportunity on my plate. Next fall, with the hopes that things go according to the plan, I will be up for a promotion as a Head Athletic Trainer.
I am extremely excited about this new career move. I feel like I am ready to head my own program. And I could definitely use a pay raise.
While my coworker and I have talked about this transition for a majority of this school year, it hasn't really hit me yet. Well, not until the past few days.
A letter of resignation has been officially submitted. The job has been officially posted. The posting was just approved today, and I am already having resumes being submitted.
I am not going to lie, I am a little overwhelmed with the resumes. I don't even know what to look for. I mean there is a lot of pressure. Will this person be knowledgeable in their skills? Are they motivated to build the program? Are they going to be on board with my ideas? If I have a large pool of applicants, how will I be able to weed out the ones I'm not interested in?
Oh my goodness the questions are racing through my head! If you are in a position of being in charge of hiring, do you have any tips for going through and evaluating resumes?
Even though I'm
This is an excellent career opportunity! I can't say that enough. I am excited about building the program, student interest, and I do have big plans for the sports medicine program! I have tons of ideas, and can't wait to make them become a reality.
