My New Old Job

I’ve just realized that it had been a week since I blogged anything. A week! Really, I can explain. I’m three weeks into my new job. It’s actually a job that I held before my last job, and so I’m not that happy to be back. I sell computers in a retail store. Mind you, it’s the oldest computer store in the country, and I’ve sold to several celebrities, including Kate Jackson (ex-Charlie’s Angels). Plus I pretty much get to specialize in Apple stuff, which is fine with me. But I’m still itching to get back to a job in new media. I’ve reestablished some contacts in that industry through my job selling to new media companies, but they still might just see me as a “shop clerk.” I’ve purposely only scheduled myself to work four days a week, so that I don’t feel trapped, but I’m being pressured to move into corporate sales, where I’d be really trapped. I guess I’d rather be on my feet 9 or 10 hours a day(!) So, if I don’t have particularly witty and interesting things to say all the time, I hope you’ll understand…
