Movin’ On Up
So, there’s some nice news on the career front that I haven’t told too many people yet. But, exciting news…I recently got a promotion at my job! *Raise the roof.*
After being here for almost 1 year, I’ve now moved from Social Media/PR Coordinator to Social Media/PR Manager. So, I guess that means that instead of coordinating projects, I manage projects, right? Either way, I’m pretty stoked.
It’s exciting to be recognized and make the shift from an entry level position to a more associate level position. I’m truly lucky to have a career I love, not just like, and I’m so happy to continue growing in the field. It’s nice to be noticed for my crazy, sometimes obsessive, borderline I-need-to-get-a-hobby excitement and effort. You can see how my life’s changed since having a job on my post, my life as a recent grad.
I’m such a perfectionist and want every idea to work, so I work hard on making that happen, maybe too hard sometimes. But, I’m a creative lady and I like to keep people on their toes. I relish in coming up with with fresh ideas that excite. I feel good when an eyebrow raises from something I’ve thrown out there. Seeing my thoughts come to life on a medium is what keeps me going. I can wake up one morning with an idea and the next week it’s taking action, getting a real response. Hooray.
So, raise your glass for all the hard work you do everyday. It’s worth it.
Cheers to growing up, getting recognized and staying stimulated. I’m a big girl now.
