March 5th. I accomplished one thing and found out that I could be waiting a month to actually go move any further towards my goal. The longterm plan is in motion. I made a call, had the stuff they wanted, and applied for a new position. Well, not a new position. More like a new place of employment.
Wow cryptic, sorry folks. I applied for the job in Las Vegas. I get to test possibly in early April. Now just to inform the bosses that they will be getting a call from Las Vegas HR. Trust me it is tough to think that I could be leaving my current operation, to be the new guy somewhere else. I have devoted a decade to working here and surviving the place that is Pueblo. Sad part is, I will only miss a few people, and if I move to Vegas, I may see them more often. I am not tied here by social relationships. I am not tied here by my job. I am a paramedic with national certs and can travel almost anywhere to do my job.
Now the trick is to get out of here and move to Vegas. I need to have all my T’s crossed and I’s dotted very soon. Pueblo is essentially fully staffed. This is a good thing. Vegas implies that they are down medics. Now if something crazy happens in the next few weeks, like Pueblo fires or loses a few medics, this transfer may be put on hold. I actually need their permission to transfer.
No matter the history I have here, I am going to contact my bosses tomorrow morning. They deserve to here from me that I am possibly transferring and that it shouldn’t be from a HR rep two states away. They have employed me for a decade. They deserve this heads up and a two week notice.
Wow it is getting real. I am moving forward toward Las Vegas. I remember driving into Las Vegas heading south into town and seeing a crapload of AMR ambulances parked off the freeway in what looked like their Headquarters. That was four and half years ago. I was on my way to get married. Things have turned out well, but I never imagined in any way that I would be desiring employment in Sin City. Strange how small little things stick out. the White ambulances with blue lettering. boxes not van type ambulance. I look forward to Facebook updates, yes Vegas AMR has a Facebook page.
Oh yea, my list of stuff for 2012.
“Take a walk around the block” Did it, with family in tow and a jogging stroller. Not a big block, but exercise none the less.
More tomorrow as I am back to work.
