It wasn’t too long ago, January to be exact, that I found myself starting a new job. I had spent the previous 4 years working for a media buying agency, which was about 2 years too long. My boss was unrealistic, demanding and CRAZY and I longed to find a job where I felt fulfilled and appreciated. On a whim I applied for a position as a web marketing assistant at a local agency. I had no experience but I had charm and they were willing to train, so what did I have to lose? I got the job. The first few months were great. My boss was someone I knew I would learn a lot from and I quickly found a new BFF. Fast forward a few months, it’s now May, and my boss informs the BFF and I that he is taking another position (insert sad face here.) But that his new company is hiring (insert contemplative face here.) Not wanting to jump ship immediately I let the former boss fill out the new company first. Plus I didn’t want to commute to Provo.
Good news though.
Things went downhill at the agency after he left. That’s not the good news, but it’s leading somewhere. And as luck would have it the old boss’ new company moved closer AND were still hiring. I got the job. And now my old boss is my new boss and all is right with the world. I miss out on bagel Friday and having popcorn:30 with the BFF, but the new job took me white water river rafting. Not bad.
More good news.
My new job requires that I blog on the company website about once a month. It will mostly be about internet marketing and SEO strategies, since duh, that’s what I do. But if you’re into that kind of thing or just want to see what I do when I’m not saving the world read my first post and let me know what you think.
