Everything Happens for a Reason

Everything in life happens for a reason. It was a sad day when I learned that I wouldn’t be able to attend college and use my scholarship at Miami University. I had worked so hard to finally get to this point and within a 30 minute phone call with my student loan lenders everything came crashing down. I was lost. I had no idea of what my future would now consist of. I took a few days to think about my options. I knew that within a few months my previous loans would kick back in and that I would have to figure out a way to pay them. I realized that the part-time position that I was working wasn’t going to cut it anymore. I was unhappy with the idea of not returning to school and having to go back to work full-time.


A few weeks went by and I had applied to several jobs I began getting call backs for interviews. I knew that I was great in sales, but I didn’t know in which direction I wanted to go with this skill. I interview with 3 different companies and turned down each offer. I didn’t feel any connection or even a spark when I was interviewing with these different companies. I took a day off from my current job to focus on finding the ‘perfect’ job. That job that would be a career, one that I would be excited to get up every morning to go to. I applied for an In-House Sales Rep position at Frame USA. As I always do; I did some research on the company, read reviews from previous employees and customers, and dug as deep as I could to find out exactly the type of culture I would be walking into.

Upon completing my interview I knew without a doubt that Frame USA was the company for me. The friendly atmosphere, the obvious team work, and positivity was undeniable. As I drove home form the interview I was excited, yet nervous. I knew that I wanted to work there but I didn’t know how well I performed in my interviews. Just a few days later I was called back for a final interview. I was still unsure, but my mind was made, Frame USA is where I belong. The next day I got the call. I was being hired on as an In-House Sales Rep. I was so excited to start this new adventure!


The biggest thing I learned from all of this is that just because one door closes, doesn’t mean that your dreams have to end. The sadness that I had from not being able to attend Miami has since vanished as this new opportunity has blossomed. It’s only day two, but I feel like this is the start of something great!
