It’s been a little quiet around these parts this week, right? What have I been doing?!
Getting a new job!
I’m so, so thrilled about this new opportunity. I had been targeting this fall to start looking into other job possibilities, but when I spotted this job posting, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It combined all of the elements of my industry that I love-government affairs, communications and event planning-and even better, it was in a field that I’m interested in! I applied, had a few interviews -where I really, really liked all of the staff-and then I got the official offer last week. In June, I’ll be joining a healthcare non-profit as the Associate Director of Communications!
Oh, and an even bigger plus? The office is only a few miles from our apartment! My current commute is about an hour door to door. Now, it should be about 15 minutes! I will missing working right in downtown DC, but I love the fact that two hours of my day will no longer be spent on commuting.
I guess I can cross one of the items off my 28 for 28 list!
