pour elle à commencer

This is my last question today, I promise! :)

"le grand jour est arrivé pour elle à commencer son nouveau travail"

My concern is about the "pour elle à commencer" up there, because I don't know if it is acceptable French -- and none of my references give me any insight on that point. The idea I'm trying to convey is "the big day arrived for her to begin her new job."

    Je suggère:

    Le grand jour est arrivé où elle devait commencer son nouveau travail.
