So remember when I talked about how powerful informational interviews were and how I think every job hunter should use them? Well, as of tomorrow, I will be gainfully employed – all thanks to an informational interview I had a couple of weeks ago.
I had initially met with Andrea from Blitz Media and Events to talk about her experience with opening up a PR and Events agency. Our conversation was both comfortable and enlightening. I guess she liked me because she told me that she was in the market for a coordinator. The role would have both an events component (perfect!) and a social media component (which complements my experience perfectly). I sent her examples of my writing style and various social media accounts that I managed and a couple of days later, she offered me the position!
I’m really excited about this opportunity and see it as the perfect launching pad for my events career. I know I have a lot to learn and can’t wait to dive in.
Oh, and I am really, really, really excited to get a regular paycheck again. Really excited.
