The Silence Is Broken, My Bags Are Packed and My Smile is Wide
So here’s the score: I’m moving to Madison, Wisconsin.
I’m going to be working for a company called Brazen Careerist which is a social network that helps folks from Generation Y find and develop meaningful careers as well as assist their employers in understanding and retaining them.
I’ve been working on a contract basis for Brazen Careerist as a community content editor and will start my full time position in Madison on October 5th.
To say I’m excited would be an understatement. I’ve never worked for a genuine startup before. I never thought I’d be working for some of the folks who inspired me to start honing my social media brand and really tease out and pursue my passions. I’m honored to be working with such a kick ass crew.
I’m cognizant of the challenges that lie ahead for me; relocating to a city over 1,000 miles away where I don’t know anyone too well yet and jumping into a job role that has very high expectations associated with it.
The entire team at Brazen Careerist has been extremely helpful in prepping me for my move, even helping me look for and secure housing! I know that on top of all this, I’m coming into this situation with pressure to perform in a big way. I know what’s expected of me and I’m looking to meet and exceed those expectations soon.
So, when am I leaving? I suspect I’ll be on the road westward between September 28th and 30th. I’ll be chilling in the Brazen Careerist office getting my bearings straight and getting settled in once I get there and officially starting work on October 5.
My last day at my current job at TNS-MI Cymfony is next Wednesday, Sept 23. I’ll be in and out of Boston getting my life together for the move. Looking forward to spending some time with folks who are free before I leave. If I don’t catch you now, I’ll be back to visit again soon.
My door is always open, too. Standard policy with me.
