job hopper

i know i have two race reports to write ~ croom fools 50k and ragnar trail atlanta ~ but i’m bursting with news right now that i can’t officially share yet so i’m writing about that first! just before i left for ragnar i got the call offering me a job i’ve been in the running for the last few weeks. it’s perfect for me. perfect! in fact the day after i first applied to it, my old boss saw the posting and called me to tell me i had to go for it. and she was ecstatic when i told her i already had. a phone interview. an in person interview with two. and a six month written marketing plan submission later i got it! t takes me back to the university i worked at for seven years and back to the world of marketing i know and love but this time i go digital … an experience my old school resume desperately needs. the people seem awesome. the commute familiar. the benefits fabulous! i haven’t put in notice yet. i have to wait for the written offer which comes after the reference and background check now in progress and having been there done that, i know the university isn’t exactly quick with these things! but my soon to be new boss hopes to have the formal offer to me by this friday for a start date of the 28th. and i don’t even have to negotiate once i get it. university policy won’t allow a starting pay above the top advertised range and my new boss already told me she will be offering the top. which makes for a nice raise from where i am now! 🙂

so yes, race reports will follow soon. but for now i just want to relish in my excitement!
