Ok, so I lied again!
I have this feeling that this journal is going to be more or less dead other than very important updates that I have.
And this one's a biggie!
I think most of you guys know my news but for those of you who don't here we go!
I'm pretty sure most of you know how much I hated my job. I didn't go to college to work on computers. In fact, somewhere is my freshman year I totally rejected the field. I'm not a programmer and I don't necessarily like working with them other than playing games and doing some web based stuff. I like to write, I like to be creative and working as a desktop consultant is as stifling as you can get. On top of all that, my customers were known not to treat me very well making me even more miserable. Unfortunately you get that when you work in a blue collar office.
So anyway, i've not been thrilled for a long time. Then something very incredible happened.
I found a posting on Craigslist. It didn't say alot but I sent my resume to it anyway. Incredibly the company turned out to be New Balance of Delaware. It was for thier website manager(aka E-Commerece Coordinator). I was shocked! I got a call back that Monday and went in for an interview that Wednesday. I kicked it's butt! Then I waited. And waited. Then I got the call for the second interview. Shock two came when I found out that one of the people interviewing me was in APO! I was sure I got it then.
Then there was the waiting game again. Man that can really zap your confidence.
However, to make a long story short, I got the call a couple weeks ago offering me the position which of course I readily took!
So with all that said, I started my second week at New Balance today. It's such a great company. Everyone has been awesome and has made me feel like part of the family. I've learned so much and it's just been incredible.
So that was worthy of an entry right? :)
