So we all know that alcoholism and addiction is a behavioral disease. To help maintain an active recovery then necessary behavioral changes must happen.
Some of these changes often include employment. One thing I was really bad at within my addiction was being reliable. Reliable to get to work, reliable to be at a family event, reliability as a whole.
What is nice about employment in your active recovery is it can help keep yourself honest and accountable. I’ll also say that I, as an active recovery addict, seem to be more motivated and determined than others that I work with. This is not to say they do bad work or lack motivation, it just means that I am aware that I have a little extra “oomph” when it comes to my day-to-day. That “oomph” is my recovery. I wake up every day trying to be better than I was the day before. What else could be more beneficial to an employer?
With that we would like to update you on the IMPACT HIRING EVENT taking place on AUGUST 24th,2016 from 9AM-12PM. This is located at 1213 N Arlington INDPLS, IN 46219 on the 1st floor.
Companies such as Kroger, Xerox, FedEx, and many many more will be conducting hiring interviews. Me and Big Jim G were talking today about our experiences in recovery in the work place. I got my “second chance” by means of a downtown restaurant and ran with it. We all need a second chance at times, this may be that opportunity for you.
