Wanted: Career

Well, today has been eventful in the world of my career I suppose.  Last week I had 2 rather long, rather successful interviews at a large media company in midtown.  Today around lunch time a woman from HR called and extended me a verbal offer.  I accepted.  They will now run background and reference checks, get back to me in 7 to 10 days and we will then set up a start date.  Upon starting I will have full benefits.  Score.  The pay sucks though.  It’s a foot in the door, it’s a foot in the door, it’s a foot in the door…

Either way, if I really love advertising the pay doesn’t matter right?  Well, when you have to eat and pay rent it does a little.  I think I would be happy with about $10,000 more than what they’re offering in this non-negotiable salary.  I actually get to work on one of my favorite brands campaign though, which is really cool.

Shortly after I got off the phone I recieved an email, followed shortly by a phone call.  It was the head hunter I’ve been working with.  A company who interviewed me 3 times for 2 different accounts and considered me the “runner up” both times has asked for me to come back and interview for yet a third accout.  If they like me so much, why can’t they offer me a job…and a hefty salary??  Anyway, so I’m going back for this interview Monday.

I also have one scheduled at an advertising giant tomorrow.  We’ll see how it all turns out, but for now…I finally have an actual job!  (I may have to take a second to pay the bills, but I have a job!)
