Movin' On Up

I really think I'm the queen of switching jobs. In 2016 alone, I worked for four different companies. Which means I had four separate W-2 forms sent to my house. Why, Lawd? 

Now, I'm sure you're thinking, "You loved your new job, why are you leaving?" And you are correct...I did love working for Warby Parker, and I encourage anyone in the customer service or optical industry to consider them if you're looking for a new place to work, but I truly felt that this was my time to make some big things happen for myself.

What Would Michelle Obama Wear?

Adulting can be hard. Can I just go back to kindergarten when my only worries were catching the latest episode of Blue's Clues and playing dress up?

I had an interview today at General Motors (GM) for a Digital Chat Advisor position. My past few interviews have been for retail jobs, so of course I was able to dress more trendy. Obviously today was a change of pace, so I had to put my professional face on.

Whenever I have to get dressed up, I usually think, WWMOW. What Would Michelle Obama Wear? The First Lady always looks so classy and put-together, so I try to channel her poise and confidence with my dressier 'fits. Now while my look may not have cost nearly as much as hers, I think it was a pretty good adaptation!

Today has been pretty interesting, and it's not even halfway over yet! 

I had my interview at Willys earlier this afternoon. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to work both there & at my current job, so I'm just going to stay where I'm at. I'm still waiting to hear back from some other places, though, so keep your fingers crossed for me!

For the interview, I decided on a taupe colored dress and a printed poncho sweater from H&M. Thank God I still had money left on my H&M gift card from Christmas, or else I would've had to leave this baby on the rack. The necklace is my Mom's. Her jewelry game is SO much better than mine, and it just so happened that this one matched perfectly with my outfit.

Bargain Baddie

I've been in a pretty good mood these past few days. Maybe it's the weather, or maybe it's because I'm back to blogging on a consistent basis. Whatever it is, I like it. 

I had a job interview today at Club Monaco. If you read my previous post, then you already know about how I've only been hearing back about sales associate positions. But I've accepted that this is my truth (for now, anyway), and I'm gonna keep it moving.

Little Victories

Today was a great day! As (some of) you guys know, I'm not new to the sales associate life. I've been working retail jobs on and off since 2012. A month ago, I was totally over working in a clothing store. I was sick of it! So naturally, I started applying for office jobs that were more geared toward journalism & communications. Out of the countless and redundant applications I've filled out, I've had no such luck!
