I am beyond ecstatic to announce that I have accepted a new position as a Senior Team Coordinator within Bedrock. The joy is multi-faceted. Let me explain. Bedrock is still within the Rock Family of Companies (commonly known for their flagship company Rocket Mortgage/previously called Quicken Loans) which means I get to stay with the amazing people who have treated me like a VIP since I started in July 2019! That means my PTO, health insurance, basically all of it stays the same except pay (which goes up!).
From the first (there were two) interview I knew this was where I wanted to be. It was my best interview to date, though it felt more like a conversation than an interview. For the first time in my life, I was able to refer to such an interaction as delightful. A word rarely used to describe the interview process.
It will be an adjustment for a couple reasons, the primary one being that I will be back in office five days a week after over a year of working from home. Which means wearing pants with a zipper or shoes with backs or brushing my hair every morning. Things that I can neither confirm nor deny as habits that may or may not have lapsed.
Another reason being that I sense this position is going to challenge me in new and unexpected ways, a thought that fills me with a small amount of anxiety that is vastly overshadowed by excitement.
I’ve got care set up for Gipsy Danger and my goal is to have my condo in maintenance mode before I return to the office. I do look forward to seeing people face to face every day and I am so excited to work with this team. In my second interview I got to meet some of the wonderful people I’d be working with which made me want this position all the more!
In other news, if you tried to access my site or any of my recent posts last Thursday (6/10) you may have noticed a distinct lack of content from the last TWO YEARS. The reason for this is simple. I am technologically challenged. I decided to downgrade my WordPress subscription because I had no need for all the extra features that were available to me with the plan I had been using and was not aware that EVERYTHING I HAD POSTED since the upgrade would disappear. So when I refreshed my most recent post was from 2018.
I was, understandably, freaking out.
I contacted WordPress customer support and advised them that, should I be unable to retrieve my previously published content, I would proceed to sob uncontrollably. Tech support was very supportive in my time of crisis and things have returned to normal. The site may look a little wonky till my agent Amy uses her wordpress superpowers to make it look shiny and new but all the content is there and that’s what matters.
I start in office the 18th!
Wish me luck and
Bye for now!
