Look Out Cruel World!

I did it! I finally graduated! ...okay so four years is average, but sometimes I felt like it would never end.

Not that I need it, but I won't get the diploma until like April. Lame, I know. Anyways, I now have a Bachelors of Accounting from the David Eccles School of Business.

I was always told to be patient and it would be worth it in the end...alright cruel world, make it worth it :)

Workin' the 9 to 5...or 6. happened...after 20+ interviews, 3 offers, 2 declines and an accept later, I am officially an employee of McCann Erickson!

McCann is a global advertising agency that does work with companies from Verizon to Microsoft. The Salt Lake office houses about 200 employees.

I accepted a position as a client accountant. I started on the 18th and worked for four days until the office closed on Christmas Eve. So, I will settle in on the 5th, working with 9 others working on the finance team. I will be able to work with another department to service our clients and make sure we come in on budget and open and close our advertising jobs on time. Yeah, I know it sounds boring, but it is a job and I am so excited to get started!

Those Days...

Do you ever have those days where your socks don't match. Your finals are almost too much to deal with. You have had 5 interviews this week totaling 17 overall causing the problem that you can't remember what you wore to the first interview and are afraid you might wear the same thing when they call you into the second interview. You need to move, but you just don't have enough time. You are secretly hoping that Christmas isn't that close so you have enough time to shop. And all you want to do is run. Ever have those days? Yeah... me too :)
*I made sure the tops matched just in case someone could see them. And no, I did not wear them to the interviews.
