This past week has been one that was nearly 3.5 years in the making.
On Monday, I was hired as the new marketing coordinator at Mark Thomas & Company, an engineering firm based in San Jose, Calif. This marks my return to the two professional fields I have long sought to get back into — transportation and marketing / public relations.
Although I have held other jobs in the years since and enrolled in graduate school (which I’ll still be in), I can finally breathe easy. This has been the longest and most difficult job search I have ever experienced — 12 interviews over a 40-month period that started when I graduated from Cal State Fullerton in December 2011. Now, that long search is all behind me.
My first day on the job is Tuesday. I am eager and excited to return to the days when I am fully employed and at my most productive once again.
Have a wonderful week, America.
