from potential to reality: or why I don't have pink hair any more…

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.)
