It has occurred to me that some of you may not know why I am so insistent on my calls for “hell yeah”. The reason for my sudden Stone Cold Steve Austin-ness is because I finally can cross one item off of my “Getting My Act Together” list.
I got the job that I wanted.
I had been interviewing for several positions both in my company and out, and internally I had been in the running for 2 spots. One was in my current department, the other was not. The quote that comes to mind is:
“A prophet is without honor in his own land.”
And as such, I landed the new position outside my Dept. Now, no place is perfect and I am sure that my new spot will bring its own share of challenges. The thing that I find hilarious is that not only did I, according to the recruiter, impress the team I interviewed with, they didn’t understand why I was being utilized currently in the way I have been.
So I am pumped about the new challenges. I’m pumped about salary, but I am sure that will pass. I’m pumped about working with a crew of frighteningly smart, driven individuals. And yes, pumped about a big-ass desk. Pumped about the fact that my value has been recognized externally, and had a nice dollar sign attached as opposed to the “I stick it too you” school of compensation.
Soooooo, I would like to take this time to thank the academy, and my producer Rene for giving me the opportunity to shine. I would like to thank my Agent Nafeesa, for always believing in me, and for listening to me when I was in Diva mode. To all my friends who knew I was destined for better, thanks gang! You were right! And lastly, to the haters, I have nothing to say to you, you won’t get free promo here. So to conclude, I know I am running long, I am movin’ on up like George and Weezy!
