3/4 (206.8) - Mark's Journal
3/4 (206.8)
It's official! I was asked a few days ago if I was interested in a 3/4-time temporary job in Ithaca College's marketing & communications group, I said yes, and as of this afternoon, I've got a job that should actually pay the bills. I start on Tuesday the 29th, right after Memorial Day.

The job will involve bulk e-mail communications to various groups including accepted applicants, statistical analysis of various communications' effectiveness, and helping implement a news and editorial management system. I'll be working with several friends, and some other folks I've come to know online, and it seems (from the outside) like a great group.

My new boss (one of the friends) understands that I'm still looking for a full-time job and might end up needing to leave before my three-month appointment ends, but if I don't leave and it's working out well, she can extend the appointment up to a year.

I'll probably also keep doing some hours at the bed & breakfast, partly to help them out and partly because I've got some financial catching up to do, and probably will for a while. My salary will be way less than I was making at Cornell, so I'll definitely still be looking for a full-time gig with a better salary. Meantime, I've certainly learned over the last seven months to live on less.
