Breaking the Silence on My Day to Day Job

As some of you know, I work day to day in advertising. Specifically, I'm a project manager that oversees builds of big websites. I usually love my job, and have been in the field for eleven years. I joke that I'm a WWW Veteran and seriously, I can't imagine doing anything else for a job.

I mentioned that in July they let my boss go, let a dear dear friend go, and let another woman in our department go. Another two coworkers left within two weeks. Another two have left since then. And this week, I announced my own departure.

What ultimately helped me in making my choice of where to go next? Some very inspirational people, who have been in the business for fourteen years. They are a small shop who has had their best year ever this year. This year. I see that as an amazing feat, and see it being something that happens when leadership is focused on people, on doing the best work, on being inspiring, and on taking risks.

I simply can not wait to join them.

Sorry to hear about your job. It sounds like it's time to make a change. I've watched the same thing happen at the hospital I work at. People here one minute, gone the next. It's so sad!

Congrats on your new job!

Congratulations! I gave notice at my job today. I do not have new work lined up yet (yikes!) but it was most certainly time. It is wonderful that you have a great place to work now!
