(seriously? you want me to wear these? every day?)
Well, I suppose it was bound to happen sooner or later.
After all, my hobby is sending out resumes. I think it's fun to write cover letters. And my bookmarks include careerbuilder.com, monster.com, jobsfordesperatepeople.com, and getajobyoupatheticloser.com.
So it only makes sense that one day I would find my way to the jobs section of craigslist. Lo and behold, there was a job listing for a writer in Plano Texas. Hey! I'm a writer! And hey! I live 5 minutes from Plano!
The job was at a financial marketing company. Hey! I write financial marketing projects!
I figured "financial marketing" was probably a pseudonym for "shady debt collection" or "fly by night payday lending" ... but what the heck. I sent off a resume.
A few hours later I got a reply.
Two days later I had an interview, at a definitely non-shady, non-fly-by-night marketing company.
A week later I had a job.
A job. Wow. Nine to five. An office of my own. Health insurance.
I start on Tuesday. Gulp.
I will probably be blogging less frequently, but I'll still be around. I definitely need to know what Fran has been eating on the bus, who Amanda has run into at the park, what Joan found in her local police reports, what Rae has found to rant about, and how Cyndi is making the world a better place.
I'm thinking I may need more than an hour for lunch. I hope that won't be a problem.
I'll keep you posted.
