2012 Is Keeping Me On My Toes

12 Jun

When I first started the interview process to get back to California from Arkansas, I met with a lot of different companies. 10, actually. Of them, I was offered 2 jobs; 1 in Austin, TX and 1 in Hollywood, CA. I took the job in Hollywood and came back home after 17 months of being away from my husband, family, and friends.

Just about 2 months into my new relationship with the new job, I started to see a few things in the company that concerned me. About a week later, one of the companies I liked best, called me with a new opportunity. Now, I’ve never been the kind to “jump ship” prematurely, or at all, but this time around, I did.

For some reason, one I couldn’t really explain, it just made sense.

The day after I put my notice in, the SVP of our department was let go, and within the next few days, several more were laid off as well for financial reasons. My job was safe, but regardless, it gave me confidence to know that I had made the right decision to pursue the other opportunity. Grant and I went with our gut, and it turns out that our gut was right.

As hard as it was to leave the friends that I made at Cimarron (and quite possibly the best boss I’ve ever had), I had to make a decision for the long term and I’m now working for Dailey on the Honda Powersports account, as a Digital Producer… per usual.

It just goes to show you that you may never know how or why things happen, but you should always be open to letting life give you little gifts here and there. I came home for one thing, but was handed another, and so the story goes…
