It’s been 3 months since I started my job and I have loved every minute of it. There have been ups and downs and good days and bad, but I can honestly say it was the best decision of my life going into full time work instead of a masters. I have learnt so much in my time at the company and have seen such a difference in myself.
I feel so much more confident with myself and what I’m capable of. I have found that I have become more self-aware, feel so much better meeting new people and just feel a lot more… like myself. That sounds really silly, but I feel like I am more myself and not pretending for anyone, not trying to impress (I mean there’s a bit of that because I want to impress my bosses but you know what I mean)!
Anyway, on Monday I found out that I’d passed my three month probation! Super excited as I can now take FULL advantage of company perks – discounts and train tickets! On top of that, I was told that I was moving teams. The team I am on at the moment does a mix of social and paid search work for certain clients. It’s a lot of fun and you get to do a wide variety of things, with new challenges everyday. The team I am going to be on (think they’re moving me today) is the social team. They essentially deal with all the social media marketing of a range of different clients. It’s so exciting. Ever since starting my own blog and getting a job in digital media, I have really enjoyed working on social media and creating things for use on Facebook or Instagram, so moving to the social team will be fantastic. I am both excited and nervous. I love my team at the moment and feel that I’ve finally found my groove, and then now I have to move and start all over again. I’ll miss working with the people on my current team as they always seem to make me laugh ALL the time, but I’m excited for this new opportunity to expand my knowledge and to really get into working with social media clients. I’ll keep you updated as to how I settle in and how it’s all going soon.
For now though, that’s just a little update on what’s been going on this week. Was going to post this on Tuesday but got side tracked with my latest TV show obsession – Greys Anatomy! There will be another blog post coming up this weekend but for now, have a lovely Friday!
