I can haz job!!!
Well a part-time job, that is. But I essentially created the job myself and made shit happen!
Remember my post about not getting the job I interviewed for at the company I really loved and adored and so badly wanted to work for but didn’t get because they wanted to re-evaluate the position? Well I sent him my proposal to run their social media as a contractor and within 2 hours he had responded “Let’s do it!”
He asked me to come out to Brooklyn today to meet with him and his creative agency to get an idea about the voice of the brand and talk about next steps. I drew up a pretty standard contract that he signed and now that I’m all official and stuff I can finally talk about it. SQUEEEEEEEEE!
The terms are 15 hours per week which is a great place to start. I am already planning to make myself invaluable to them so that by the time they’re ready to hire someone full time, I’ll already be there and be the obvious choice.
Also now I can say the company is a fast casual restaurant chain here in NYC called Dig Inn Seasonal Market. I’ve been eating there since a friend introduced me to it about 6 months ago. All of their food is healthy and delicious and comes from local, sustainable farms. They just opened a 6th location in SoHo and are continuing to expand. I’m so incredibly passionate about their food and their philosophy that you don’t have to be a health food martyr to eat well.
I’m so proud of myself for creating my own opportunity. It isn’t something I would have ever thought to do before working with my behavioral therapist. This shit really works! Now just on to the next step of turning this into a full-time gig so that I can both do what I love and love what I do.
