Say hello to the new office.
After trying to decide which city to live in, Denver ultimately prevailed mostly because of this opportunity. On Monday, I will start as the new graphic design assistant with the marketing department for the Denver Broncos (like, what!? I’m so excited and I still can’t believe it). And, yes that is the actual office, since I will be working at Mile High Stadium. I will also get to work on some projects for the Denver Outlaws (outdoor lacrosse), Denver Cutthroats (minor league hockey) and Stadium Management Company. I will get to work on a bit of everything from promotional materials and print publications, to web design and larger prints. Based on what they have told me so far, I will be crazy busy. Better busy than bored! Ultimately, I decided that this job would give me better experience in the industry and would help me in the future, so it was worth sticking around the 303 for a little longer.
Everything is moving quickly as I got a call for the interview on Friday, interviewed Monday and got an offer on Tuesday. Not only do I start on Monday, but I will be in California from Thursday until Sunday for my uncle’s wedding. Talk about life going from 0 to 60.
While the position is full-time, unfortunately it only runs until December 31, 2013. There is a chance that the position could lead to more opportunities with the team, but there are no guarantees. So win-win? I get to stay in Denver and have some more time to get my life figured it out, and maybe down the road I can head to ATL (or whatever city I decide to conquer next). And for all my friends cheering for me to move back east, as Emily said, Denver may have won the battle, but there is still a war. Stay tuned for Job Hunt 2014.
My family is also obviously very excited about the job. My dad has had season tickets for longer than I can remember and my family is all about the Broncos. I was practically raised for this.
There are still a couple of kinks to work out including how I am going to get my car back from Raleigh and the 1,600 miles I drove last summer, as well as what to do with the rest of my belongings and whether or not I want to keep living at home or get an apartment out here for now.
I can’t wait to finally start my new job and this next chapter! Thanks to everyone who has supported me through this awkward post-grad, pre-employment phase! Go Broncos!
