The Job Hunt = Over! Hired!

Being on the job hunt is tough. I think most people know that.

I've been here since the end of September and had been looking for a job right from the start, without having much luck. And as much as I love the Food Network, when you start seeing repeats of certain shows, or have the daily schedule almost memorized, you know unemployment just ain' that great anymore. You're itching to be doing something.

Don't get me wrong, I loved expanding my recipe repertoire, and even went to a few book signings of my favourite chefs, (oh hey, Cake Boss!) but there's only so much one can take. It's been like Food Network overkill. Moderation is key, people.

(If you need a good stirfry recipe though, I'm your girl.)

Anyway, as I said, I wasn't having much luck at all, until a fellow Humber PR grad contacted me about a position that was opening up at the agency she was working. Interested, I applied, had a great interview, and two days ago, I was offered the position! So, I can finally say:

I'm hired!

I begin work at the agency next week, and I'm so excited. A big thanks to my pal Jenna for helping me out, because without her, I wouldn't be in this new position!

Wish me luck and have a happy week! :)
