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.
