Dream Job


After being rejected for a couple of jobs that I didn't really want anyway, I ended up getting a job that will totally make leaving my 4 month old at home worth it {sort of}.

I will be working for 3-form which is a manufacturing company that supplies designers, architects and consumers in general with environmentally sound material with an uber-modern flare. I will be helping out with photo shoots for new product brochures, coordinating the time line of advertising deadldines, helping out with tradeshow logistics and {my favorite} writing copy for the brochures, website and other written work. I'm really excited, a little nervous and seriously amazed that they picked me.

They probably felt sorry for me since through the whole interview I was smiling and slurring "this is my dream job..." I start the day after memorial day which gives Cory time to give two weeks notice at DCWV. And then a week after I leave for Chicago for our first tradeshow {one of only 3 a year...one is in NYC...hello erin!} And the girl who I am replacing leaves for Cleveland at the end of June. It will be all me.

I'm so excited to work for a company that is as much interested in being environmentally sustainable (ecoresin is made of 40% recycled industrial material) as they are about their bottom line. I will also be paid to buy and return expensive furniture. That's the deal maker right there.

Hooray for Mary - the smarty pants. The company must have excellent hiring practices and be well run if they chose you. If Cory's needs advice about his new job as a stay at home Dad - give Andrew a call.
