Work is play

Share us!

As some of you discovered last weekend, I have a new job. For the past four years, I’ve been building towards a career move. I made a great leap forward when I got a new job at the beginning of 2009. It was my first agency job, and it was great. I was permitted to test out new apps for clients and I was able to build a good knowledge base for social media marketing, advertising and community relations. This was recognized by Calder Bateman, and after weeks of discussions, meetings and interviews in March, I earned myself a job offer… which I accepted.

And while the work I’ve started on is tremendously compelling, I wanted to brag a bit about my office. Mostly because, since I’ve been out of school, I’ve never had my own office.

I’ve sat in large, open rooms, cubicles, the oil-soaked, shag-carpet-festooned back office of a garage… I’ve even worked jobs where there WAS no office. I had to work OUTSIDE. IN THE SUNSHINE. Can you believe that?

Anyhow, some of my friends were curious to see my new office (featuring a door!) so this weekend when I was in doing a few work-y things, I snapped a few images of my office, and some of the decorations adorning it. Enjoy the nerdfest!

    The Calder Bateman building is a really cool building.

    […] No, I’m kidding. I don’t want to Eff my Anything. The new jorb’s going well. The people are nice, my boss hasn’t tried to kill me (except with extreme hot and cold temperatures in my office — something he attributes to “the building” [where the building is obviously someone or someTHING that wants to kill me. FML]), and I have a sweet office, as I mentioned before. […]
