On September 3rd my job was eliminated. I felt like a failure, panic set in, and everything got blurry. As the person who was telling me about my severance package was talking, I began thinking about who I should contact first to get insight about a potential job. As I was packing up my desk I had figured out who I would contact first, and at my car I began emailing those names. Seven hours later I was chatting online with someone who then offered me an unbelievable job. SEO Project Manager at click2rank. But there was a catch; we would have to move to Washington. So after thinking it over with my wife, we’ve decided to take the job and move. Last week was spent finalizing everything; this week will be spent in Washington finding a place to live at. And if all goes as expected, I’ll be driving up to our new place at the beginning of next week.
So why take this job? First of all the severance package was only for two weeks. Two weeks isn’t a lot of time to find a job, not to mention one in the same field. I’ll admit if you’re a veteran in said field then it might be possible. But if you’re still new to it like I am, it can be little more difficult. I’m also taking this job because there aren’t a lot of opportunities like this one around here.
It’s going to be a big change from Kansas, but we’re ready for it. This is a lot shorter post than I wanted it to be, but I guess I’ll answer any questions left unanswered in the comments. As always, thanks for reading.
