Sorry for all the secrecy, but I didn’t want to say anything until it was actually official. And as of yesterday afternoon, it is.
Come September 30th, I will no longer be working for the Toy Store. It’s been a good run, with it’s ups and down. And frankly, things were turning around towards something pretty good. But, a new opportunity has presented itself, and I had to see where that would take me.
A few weeks ago I was contacted by a Marketing Director, stating that he thought I’d be a great fit for this job opening at his company (after finding me via my blog of all places). Emails were exchanged. We met informally. One week ago today I made the commute for a formal interview. On Monday they made an offer, and yesterday I couldn’t refuse it.
You’re looking at the new Marketing Assistant. After I return from my vacation, on October 11th, I’ll start this new journey. My main focus is in graphic design. I’m pretty excited about it. I’ll have a long commute, but this is a good opportunity for me. Even if it means I had to color over my pink highlights… and that they might have to wait a while before making their return.
So that, my friends, is what I’ve been all hush-hush about. I guess this is also a lesson in what your blog can do for you! (No, I’m still surprised by that one.)
