After college we both moved to Corbin, Kentucky! We did not get married yet, we both had our own jobs and separate apartments. This was no longer practice adulting – it was the real world!
For Jocelyn, finding a job was difficult! She probably applied to 50 or 60 jobs and it was exhausting. There were not a lot of jobs, no real big companies, none that fit her degree anyways. She probably got 40 rejection letters and it was discouraging!
One day we were out jogging and ran into a woman named Francis. Francis happened to be the Vice President of Human Resources at a company in the next town over. We got to talking and she said, “well, there just so happens to be job for a Technical Writer.” Basically, this company manufactures commercial dishwashers. She was one of the first calls I had gotten back!
I came back in when the President was there, I was super nervous! Basically, he offered me a job for a Marketing Assistant. I took it. Of course one month later on September 11th, everything changed. It was a scary time for everyone. A few weeks later the markets crashed and a ton of people lost their jobs – including Francis. I ended up surviving a lot of layoffs over the years at that job.
For Shane he was in an office job working for his dad’ insurance agency – if you know anything about Shane this is NOT his thing!
Needless to say life after college was not what we had pictured in our minds! We had some great opportunities along the way and this is the chapter of our lives that actually truly shaped who we are – the way you know us today!!
