Employed, Part II; Or, How I Came All The Way To Santa Fe To Go Corporate

Received my official employment offer today in the mail, after accepting the verbal one on Friday. I'm going to work at the global headquarters of an international luxury real estate company as their in-house Creative Director. They're growing and expanding around the world, and are looking to rework some existing marketing collateral as well as instituting new programs.

Answered an ad for this position just before I started at my current job. They do a quarterly publication, and that was the focus of the newspaper ad; once I started going through the interviews, it became apparent that they had some other thoughts for the position. And it seems a pretty good match with the work I've been doing for the past few years.

So I've given my two weeks notice at the print shop; we're still in our 30-day trial, but I don't want to just abandon them. And I've started packing away my jeans. The office is "business casual," so I'm going to have to be dressing up for work — something I haven't had to do on a regular basis since my summer job at Travelers.

And, speaking which, and of dressing up (or not anymore), this week is M&D's last week of work. As of the end of the day on Thursday, they're retired!

Your Christie's link is empty, FYI. "I keep track of these things. One of us has to."

Mad propos to M&D; does this mean they'll be visiting you more?

Corporate and business casual. Ha. May I suggest one of each color from the khaki selections in the J. Crew catalogue: stone, wheat, bone, sand, desert, eggshell....

Go B!!! So happy for you! The job sounds awesome...my Mom just retired as of the first week in June - this will be the first fall in 43 years that she has not started a new school year...crazy!

Yippee! I like the way you describe the new position as a good fit. I can understand the consternation at having to dress up and look your job---it's not fair!
