I have a new job.
While I previously spent my days answering an endless stream of emails and phone calls as a web support specialist, I will now be spending my days writing and tweeting as a Content Marketing Coordinator (guess who now has not one, but two separate Twitter accounts!)
It’s an exciting move for me. Four years ago, I never would have guessed that my highly academic path (trailing through postmodern literature, foreign languages, masculinities theory, aesthetic negativity, and museum studies and culminating in a degree in Comparative Literature with a side of German) would have led up to a marketing position at a software company. However, while I still occasionally expose my embarrassing lack of business acumen by asking questions such as “What exactly is a lead?”, the opportunity to put my fingers back to the keyboard, be creative, and think will be a great to get back in touch with my liberal arts roots.
And who knows? Maybe this will finally be the impetus I need to start watching Mad Men.
