Personal update: new job!

So it’s happened.  After waiting for over a year to get a job, especially a job in my field, I’ve finally got one!

I am now a microbiological technician for Lab Support, signed on for a six-month contract with Silliker, Inc., a food safety company right here in Columbus.  Although I’m not working closely with any bacteria yet, I’m enjoying the work enough that I hope Silliker hires me at the end of the six months.

To close this update, I have a word of advice for anyone who’s struggling to find jobs by online search engines.  Try looking for jobs the old-fashioned way, using employment agencies, and if you can, try contacting those employment agencies the old-fashioned way, using your phone.  Because that’s how I found my new job, when I was about ready to give up on Monster and Indeed.com.

I'm a budding food safety scientist who's going to start a Master of Public Health at Ohio State University this fall. I want to be a food safety sanitarian or inspector for a government health department.
