I Landed a Job in the City Where I Really Want to Live

I decided to take a leap of faith and try to interview for a job two cities over from my city. I needed to make more money, and I’m one of the living in cities larger than the one that I was living in. After the interview, I was told that whoever they would be hiring would need to start right away. I wondered if I would be able to find an apartment in Colorado Springs quickly if I happened to the lucky person they hired. So after the interview, I drove around the city a bit to look to see what was available. I even stopped at a variety of different complexes to inquire within.

The more I drove around, the more I became even more interested in Colorado Springs. I had been there a couple of times for different reasons over the years, but I hadn’t really spent a whole lot of time there. The only reason that I picked this city it’s because it’s larger than where I was living and because a job that I wanted was located there. But while driving around there full time. I told myself that even if I didn’t get this particular job, I needed to go on more interviews in the area for the chance to move there.

A few days after my interview, I received the phone call where I learned that I got the position. It felt wonderful to hear that. Luckily, quite a few of the apartment complexes that I had gone to had available units. Three different places told me that they had move-in ready units available and I could move in right away. I picked the one that interested me most and signed a rental agreement immediately. I immediately gave notice at the place where I had been living and started packing up my belongings right away.
