Happy Pump Day


Hello lovelies, I hope you're having an awesome 'pump day'. That's muscle pump, not shoes ladies, but yes, a hot pair of heels would be perfect to top off this day. :) After a solid workout, my baby cooked up a massive set of NY strips and popped open a glass of cabernet to celebrate my new job as a Print Account Manager. Woot Woot! I'm super pumped to get started next week!! 

My interview was stellar and the team was so easy to talk to. It wasn't the type of interview with a 5 page list of behavior based questions from a panel. Whew. I have landed jobs in the past with a long interview, but really, who wants to go through that with every applicant? I was warmly greeted by two enthusiastic ladies who were actually a bit skeptical of hiring a new member, but they warmed up to me quickly. We chatted for a bit and I asked questions about the facility, which skills they were looking for in a new print manager, which projects they were working on and what were some of their major problems and concerns that I could help address. We had a very candid conversation and I did answer their questions about my strengths, my organizational skills, and how I dealt with customer issues. Overall, it was a very open, informative, and relaxed conversation. The team I'll be working with is supportive, knowledgeable, and friendly. Can't wait to get back to it. 

In the meantime, I burned off some energy with today's workout. My body is starting to reel from the long workouts I've been putting in and I need to get back to time saving workouts to suit my schedule. I kept this one to an hour while jamming out to the House Music Playlist I posted. So let's get pumped and get to work ladies! :)
