This post has been a long time coming because the events I am about the share were set in motion around three weeks ago. New Year’s brought with it a determination to remodel my career and as such I started tremulously searching for a new job.
My requirements were defined: I wanted a content management position (involving writing and editing) for a good company and if it could be telecommute so much better. I wasn’t optimistic and was expecting a long search. The long search was not meant to be, however, because the very first day I looked I found exactly what I was looking for. I applied and waited.
The company contacted me and now after three weeks of waiting and two interviews I have a new job! I am the proud new content manager of a non-profit start-up called Qvisory. It’s brand new and as such the position is a part-time contract position which means that I will be doing it concurrently with my present full-time job. Hence, the title of this post.
I think it’s distinctly possible that I’ve either lost my mind or am subconsciously yearning for the days when I worked full-time while taking 20 credits at school. The next three months are going to be exciting but very very busy. I’m willing to do this, however, because it’s such a unique opportunity.
The content I will be managing revolves around work issues that are relevant to young Americans and as such a large part of my job will be doing research into what it means to be a working youngster. Essentially, I’ll be doing what I do anyway only I’ll be getting paid to do it. Some of you may even remember me describing this sort of thing as my ideal job. The contract could potentially turn into a full-time position later but for now I’m just excited to start my foray into content management.
If you’re interested to see my work on a website other than this one, you are more than welcome to visit the Qvisory website. I will be doing some sporadic blogging of my own on that site so if you need some insight into work issues come on over.
In the meantime, wish me luck as I attempt to work 60 hours every week and still see my family. It’s going to be a wild ride and I for one am stoked to see what will happen. My husband and puppy, however, are slightly more reserved…
