When we were first making aliyah, people were slightly horrified that I didn’t have a job lined up for when we arrived.
They were even more horrified when I told them that I would be happy packing supermarket shelves if that was the only job I could get.
Then I was lucky enough to get a job within a month of arriving in Israel and I’ve just passed my 2 year work anniversary with the company.
I have also only just realise, like sitting at the bus stop this morning realised, that I have actually manifested my words from 2 years ago.
You see, I work for a company that price compares products across a variety of supermarkets. My job, specifically, is to make sure that all the data we receive from the various stores is correct in terms of price, quantity and of course, which shelves the products are on in the website.
It only took me 2 years to twig, but even though I may not be physically packing shelves at the local super, I am digitally packing shelves for a variety of supermarkets.
