The past 6-7 months I have been working this global position… my future work was never too concrete or clear. I literally have been going from place to place, working from here and there, not truly knowing where my career was going. But last night I have received news on what I will be doing for the next couple of years and the career path I will be working towards… I will be moving one year in Houston learning and working with the global Horizontal Completions team! After my one year “training” in Houston, my boss and I will be discussing an ex-pat position overseas as a technical advisor, global product champion, project engineer, etc…. I am still in shock at how dramatically my life has changed since I received this position. I can only thank God in blessing me for this opportunity. I have always been motivated to succeed, make a lot of money, travel a lot, and excel in my career, but never did I know that I would be able to do all of these things so quickly and at such a young age. I will not even be 24 by the time I move overseas officially!
It makes me nervous that so many people are watching over my career… but I know that there is really nothing to worry about. I am so extremely blessed and thankful to have such a supportive boss… I am scared that I will let her and the others watching me down. I cannot and will not fail!
I was told 6 months ago that I would be most likely heading over to Australia, which I was ECSTATIC for, but being able to spend one year in Houston and hang out with all my college friends (whom I have not seen since I graduated) will be a great experience for me. Being close to home will be nice as well. I knew before that sometime in my life I would live in Houston for my position since Houston is the oil/gas Mecca. Although where I will be is a bit different than I expected from a couple of months ago, I fully trust God in that he always has a plan for me.
I am excited to start this new journey! I cannot wait to get working!
