I’ve been saving this post for over a week now waiting for the perfect time to post it. That times seems now.
June seems to be a month of change. There is usually a life event that has me ending an adventure and starting a new one. This June is no different. I will be leaving my current place of employment, after 2 years, on Friday and moving to a new path in my career.
.bitter. .sweet. .mixed. .emotions.
This was my first job after graduating college. I learned so much while here and met a lot of great people. While learning and growing, I was able to realize and visualize where I want my marketing career to move.
I’m excited for what lies ahead but I am also nervous. The new position is more focused. Instead of working on several MarCom activities (emails, print, promo fulfillment) I will be working on lead generation campaigns and learning a new marketing automation system. I’m confident I will land on my feet after training, it’s the ramping up that makes me anxious.
I’m not good at saying goodbye in situations like this. At all. In fact I work myself up so much that it consumes all my thoughts. I seem to be a bit more relaxed now that I took my exit interview and most of the tasks I do on a daily basis have been handed off.
To those who may be reading this from my current place of employment – It was a pleasure working with you and have learned so much in the past 2 years. I’m sure we will cross paths again and look forward to it! Instead of goodbye – I will see you on the flip side!
On a side note – I will be working at the same company as a fellow runner, blogger, tweeter Kimi! It will be nice to “know” someone as soon as I walk in the door… or go down the slides (More on that after my first week!).
*Do you have a month where things always seem to change? For the good or bad?*
