Daily Prompt: Against All Odds

“Tell us about a situation where you’d hoped against all hope, where the odds were completely stacked against you, yet you triumphed. Be sure to describe your situation in full detail. Tell us all about your triumph in all its glory.” –The Daily Post

Last semester, I worked one shift at my job before applying for a step-up promotion to be a Manager-In-Training. I applied with the mentality of “why not!” and it paid off because I got the job. I knew I was somewhat new but I wanted to try for it anyway.

I started to regret applying when the time came for my interview. I began to realize how unprepared I was considering the fact I was so new to the facility. I didn’t have that much experience and I was already aiming for a promotion of sorts.

Since then, I’ve worked many shift at both my current job and the manager-in-training job. A few weeks ago, I applied to be a Senior Manager and I have my interview for it on Friday. A lot of the current Senior Managers are graduating since they’re seniors and so they’ll need to be replaced. I know I’m a freshmen but we’ll see what happens. I’m hoping for the best!
