"Landing a job like getting into Harvard"
I have some news...at the end of last week, I accepted a job offer and I start my new job marketing online video games a week from today! After 13 months of unemployment, 4 months of searching, 1 blog, a bunch of informational meetings and a few REALLY bad interviews, I finally landed a something...apparently, in this economy, this is not that easy, and a recent CNN article likens finding a job to getting into Harvard. So basically, my parents can finally be proud that their daughter was nerdy enough to be accepted to an Ivy League institution!
A few posts ago, I talked about my thought cycle of doubt, fear and worry. I'm still a little bit in that cycle, especially since I haven't started working and don't really know how it's going to turn out, but I'm hoping for the best and I'm actually pretty excited to start something new! Change is good, right?
So now what? I still want to continue my blog as it's been a fun outlet for me and really, how will my readers cope without my bi-weekly Farmville update?? But what shall I rename it? Some ideas I'm tossing around in my head:
Hmmmm...I think this MAY require some more thought...
