a new job

In July, I applied for, interviewed for, was subsequently offered a new position, and I accepted the position at my employer. YAY! Officially starting 8/22, I will be a Sourcing Analyst for the Contact Center. I will basically be the point person for the contact center's outsourced account. I'm really looking forward to it...I've been in various contact center positions through my first 4 years at my employer and now I'm headed back to that department and working with the fabulous people. It's sad to leave my current position. I've never worked with a bad group of people at my employer and my current team is no different...going to miss everyone I currently work with.

I am able to maintain my home worker status so I'm thrilled for the opportunity to be able to advance my career even though I'm a home-based worker. I used to think working from home would really restrict my opportunities but I feel anything is possible now! The other fun piece is that I'll have the opportunity to travel to the Philippines a few times a fun for Kirsten. Maybe I'll throw the hubs in my suitcase or something.

Maybe this will get me one step closer to figuring out 'what I want to be when I grow up.' :)

I'll be dabbling in my new position next week(attending a few meetings, better understanding some of my responsibilities, etc)...can't wait.

Happy weekend everyone!
