My brother, who was working for Marks and Spencer in Cookstown and is set to begin both a placement and scholarship with Randox Laboratories in Crumlin – County Antrim, is considering offering me his job. His manager will speak to me some time next week. However, the most important thing is not to look a gift horse in the mouth and continue applying for other jobs in the meantime.
However this will be a golden opportunity to ask for what I need. Learning to stand on my own two feet has matured me and all the trials and tribulations I had to endure beforehand have allowed me to become more productive. It’s like Parkinson’s Law – work extends to meet deadline. Perhaps my university degree wasn’t such a waste of time after all.
Becoming a valuable asset in the place I worked at in Magherafelt and my domestic chores mean that I am a good worker and can adapt to changing situations. No more lallygagging anymore. 🙂
Also, I can use my Asperger’s to my advantage as my employment advisor could explain to my brother’s manager how it affects me in a working environment. It would be more ‘show me, tell me’.
Light at the end of the tunnel?
