So since my last blog, I have started my new job! YAY! Big news & lots of excitement! One week in and I am having a great time! Of course, it's a lot of information to take in the first few weeks, but I am already starting to develop my own pattern for things! It's definitely a big transition for me, and while I am still in a bit of a funk with the time change and waking up much earlier than usual, I feel like I'm going to adjust just fine! I'm really excited that my first week on the job, I already got to start planning promotions and really use my creativity to any extreme I please!
Right now I am working on a promotion for Earth Day. I am looking into some environmentally friendly products, which will be included in some shipments that get sent out! Since the company I work for deals a lot with European countries, they are really big on the "going green" aspect, so it's the perfect promotion to run. It shows that we as a company want to make a difference in the environment, and we also want to spread the awareness world wide!
Along with the promotional activities, I am just getting the hang of all the daily marketing functions that need to be taken care of. There are a lot of things that are done in the beginning of the month, and then finalized at the end, so since I started right in the middle of the two, it's been a weird process since there still is a lot to learn! The company I work for sells electromechanical components. I know, sounds pretty complicated, but you come to learn that a lot of companies rely on these components to be available since many of them are obsolete. It's really interesting to listen around the office because the sales people talk to people all over the world, so the different languages are pretty neat.
So over the course of the next few weeks, I will have officially taken over the role as head of marketing and it will pretty much be my boat to sail! It's a lot of responsibility as you can imagine, but I feel confident that all will work out just fine!
Aside from all that exciting stuff, I will be visiting the Woodland Park campus tomorrow for the Graduation Salute! Yikes...scary to think about that actually! I was debating whether or not to attend graduation since I finished back in September, but I came a long way, how could I not walk in graduation? So tomorrow I will go and get my cap/gown fitting and hopefully see some old friends I haven't touched base with in a long time! Definitely looking forward to it, and then in a little over a month, I'll be walking myself down that aisle!
Well, I hope everyone is enjoying this BEAUTIFUL weather! Enjoy the rest of your week!
