P is for promotion

I probably don't need to say too much more than the title, but I'll share anyway.  Right before the end of the day I was brought in by my manager and offered a promotion!

I did and didn't see this coming.  We had talked awhile back about my current position compared to the level I thought I was performing at but a lot of time passed between then and now.  I was excited to hear the news and finally feel like I had made progress.

It's one of those situations where you know you're at a different level than when you came out of college (which is when I started as a Marketing Coordinator), but that growth and your transitions aren't clearly defined in your resume.  Of course, I could tell a potential employer how much I had developed myself professionally but having it laid out on your resume sometimes says more.

While I feel it was well deserved, I also feel incredibly blessed.  I have friends that in the past year have lost their jobs or feel like they are still in the position I just came out of and that makes me grateful for this new opportunity.

Overall, my job isn't changing much.  I took on a lot more responsibility awhile ago and now it's officially becoming part of my job description, plus I'm responsible for an intern... eek!  But seriously, how fun is that?  I mean after this season's first episode of The Office, I have been having way too much fun thinking about the possibilities.  Just kidding, we won't send them on Starbucks runs or break into their car.  Although, if I was an intern I wouldn't mind.
