Partner In Crime

So, I’m sure you’re all wondering what my job is right? No, well, Cynthia is anyway. 😉

Here’s the scoop. My hubby’s boss called me one afternoon and said he may have found a job for me. He was kind enough to pimp my resume. He said his friend was the principal agent for a well known national insurance agency and had lost two people in the past two weeks and was looking for someone specific. So, he faxed him my resume, I in turn faxed my cover letter and letter of reference. He called me and we set up an interview. I had no idea what, exactly, I was interviewing for. All I knew was it was in insurance.

I showed up that Monday and it was amazing. The job duties are identical to what I used to do at the bank only with insurance instead of investments, plus some administrative work. The best part is, that here, not only do I get to book the appointments, I get to make the sale and collect commission. He said he was basically looking for a partner in crime. I told him that’s what I do, and I’d love it if that were on my business cards.

I work for the principal agent, not the big national company, which is pretty cool, big corporate backing, with the small town feel. It’s a small office, there’s only four of us: two of whom are retirement age and very sweet. My boss is great. He’s very laid back and very excited to have me on board. He keeps telling me he knows I am going to do very well here. He’s great. He is going to put my strengths as a social networker to use as well by sending me out to shmooze at the local Chamber’s of Commerce. I love this job and I’m really excited about the opportunities involved. And he took us all out to lunch today to celebrate my first day. Hows that for a cool boss?!
