New Job

I don't think I ever told you guys about my new job! I started at the very end of October right when all the house craziness really hit.

I'm a marketing rep (ahem, "community liaison") for a wound care center in town. I travel in a 45 mile radius trying to talk physicians into sending patients to our practice, and I volunteer at area senior centers to have a friendly presence among our biggest demographic.

I have my bachelor's in Public Relations, so I'm actually doing what I went to school for! Which is weird, doing the stuff I read about in my textbooks. I'm the first marketing person my wound care center has ever had, so I have to be really creative and fill up my time. Which is sometimes easeir said than done. Since I'm the only marketing person, I work by myself pretty much all the time. Which is nice, because I don't have to collaborate, but it kind of sucks, because I can't collaborate.

It's kind of my first "grown up" job. I'm meeting tons of people and I think this is going to be a great thing to add to my resume.

Are you working in the field you went to school for/intended to work in? Have you ever started a new job in the midst of a major house renovation?


  1. I have Marketing and International Business degrees and I do the marketing for our international business program at a large university! I am also the first person in this position and although it gives me a lot of creativity, boy it is hard! My coworker told me that this is the best entrepreneurial experience you can ever get. Cheers to Marketing/PR!

  2. I did a double degree at uni here in Aust - law and pyschology (sucker for punishment right here!). I now work as an employment relations lawyer, which uses the skills I learnt in both degrees. I love my job and it sounds like you are definitely moving in the right direction getting some experience working in the area you studied in!


Hearing from you all makes my day!
