You know what you want. And what you love. You love building brands. You love digital media. You’d love to work for a leading digital media company that has audacious growth plans in this region. But you also want time for yourself, your family and friends. You’d really want to work 3 days per week.
You positively enjoy collaborating with people. You simply love to be inspired and inspiring. Add that to the fact that you have a natural interest in metrics-driven performance monitoring and you might well be just the person we’re after.
Ever so often whenever I decline job interviews that come my way including those that I would have jumped at in a heartbeat pre-Liam (how often is it that an industry you’re unfamiliar with is willing to give you a shot and still maintain a similar pay scale as per last drawn), the busybody in me will still click on job listings (I used to subscribe to every single job search giant out there!) just to suss out if there was ever a possibility of really liking anything enough to give it a go and get the work-life balance I yearn for. We all know how insane the first few months at a new job can get, least being able to gain the understanding of colleagues on why you leaving on time to spend time with your kid would be more important than theirs.
So when I saw the above-mentioned job description last evening. I had to take a second read. Okay, maybe a third. It seemed so fitting – digital media being right up my alley, and woah a 3 days work week? Time for myself, family and friends? Was that even possible considering how I’ve hardly time to myself and friends being the SAHM that I currently am. Enjoy collaboration with people? Just what I’ve been busying myself with of late trying to be boss.
Truly, the idea and sound of it is such sweet nectar. Too good to be true, or simply too true. Gaah. Torn, torn, torn.
