Landed my dream job in a tough economy
Back in the summer of 2007 I ventured away from a good position with a great company in pursuit of further career advancement as the company I was working with didn’t offer much in that area along with advancement opportunities.
Since the summer of 2008 I had changed jobs 5 times and was struggling in a poor economy in 2010 where there was little to no opportunity. I had tried working for a couple of small start-up companies with some very big problems and knew that I was talented and that my background, experience and handful of references spoke for themselves.
But despite all of this I couldn’t find the job that I really wanted and I was growing more and more discouraged. I had no problem getting an interview and after the 2nd disastrous job in 2010 I really took my time to make sure that the next career move I made would be a promising one.
During the end of 2010, I was actively interviewing and went on an interview with one of the largest creative ad agencies in the country. I used to drive by their offices all the time on my way to various places and would dream about the chance of working there. I had thought about working at this ad firm since 2008.
Well at the end of 2010, I interviewed with several folks in one of their offices, the one that I had been dreaming of working at, and landed a position with the company.
I just started working there last week and have some very impressive clients that I’m managing along with an amazing supervisor and team of colleagues. So my story is another proof that the Secret really works. I’m on my way to working for a great organization in a great position doing what I love to do and being around the coolest and most talented individuals.
