Well, the word is officially out.
Pursuing the position is not a move I made lightly. After all, I’ve been pretty vocal about how happy I’ve been at my current workplace. Who could be unhappy while working with a group of people like these? (And hey, no creative workplace is without some occasional constructive conflict.) But it looks like I’m getting to move to a place with great people as well.
But in the end, it felt like it would be an amazing fit and a great opportunity. (Not to mention it’s a half hour shorter commute–a not-minor consideration when you’re a parent who jealously guards time with her family, and when gas is at $4 a gallon.)
I consider myself privileged to have gotten this new opportunity, and equally privileged to have had the opportunity to work for my previous employer.
