I got a job offer today and I accepted! The position is Interactive Account Manager, but the web department I’m working in is only a few months old, so everything will be flexible and TBD. The company is called Unit 7 (named for a song by jazz guitar great Wes Montgomery). Check them out here: www.unit7.com.
Their offices are fantastic. Right off Union Square in Manhattan. My commute is about 30 minutes.
The pay is great – twice what I made before, but I’m pretty sure that’s the general cost of living increase for New York. Everything here does seem to be about twice as expensive. I know that if I were to live without a roommate, my rent would be double my LR mortgage. So living with a roommate will allow me to save up a bit.
I have to say my streak of good fortune is still in full effect. I got in town a week ago Tuesday, had my first job interview this last Tuesday, and got the job today. All the more surprising is that I had originally intended just to be a temp for awhile, but the recruiters nabbed me and put me out there. So I’m plunging headlong into this thing. I start on Tuesday, after the MLK holiday. Wish me luck. Hopefully my Arkansas job skills match up to the Big City.
1.) Laptop travails notwithstanding.
