8 Months of job searching and I FINALLY found a great job. My new position is an account manager at an advertising agency. I’m basically the liaison between our graphic designers and the clients we’re working for.
I was so excited (and nervous) on Monday morning, I could barely sleep the night before. It’s only been two days but I’m loving it so far. My supervisor and coworkers have been super nice. Most of my coworkers are in their mid-twenties to early thirties so we all have a lot in common. I was ecstatic to find out the girl I share an office with is a runner AND she’s running the Chicago Marathon! We are going to be very good friends.
One of the biggest challenges I’m adjusting to is my commute to work. Instead of driving 5 minutes across town to work I’m driving 30 minutes to the train station and then 45 minutes on the train.
I hate that it takes me 30 minutes just to get to the train but the ride it self is GREAT! No traffic and I can text and tweet all I want. I’m a little worried about riding the train in the winter because I’m the biggest baby when it comes to cold weather but the Metra stop is right across the street from my office so I don’t think it will be that bad.
In other news….
The Chicago Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon is only 2 1/2 weeks away! I can’t wait to run my second 1/2 marathon. If you’re running the race or live in Chicago you should come to the post-race tweetup I’m co-hosting with Chanthana and Jenny.
