Yes, this came about pretty suddenly, even for me.
It’s no real secret that I haven’t been that happy with my current job. Great company, not so great position within it. All the fringe benefits in the world couldn’t make up for a job that was restrictive, uninspiring, unexciting and woeful compared to everyone around me.
So I was looking around. Then in the space of less than a week, I applied for a job on Monday night, got a call on Tuesday, went to an interview on Wednesday morning, was offered the job Wednesday afternoon, accepted on Thursday afternoon and sent away the acceptance letter, then gave notice at my current job on Friday afternoon. Just like that.
And the new job … well, very interesting. Its title is Web Producer, for a magazine, so I’ll be in charge of the whole web presence and operation for the title. There’s a hell of a good pay rise in it, which is always a good thing.
And it’s for Australian Penthouse magazine. Yes, that’s exactly what you think it is.
So while it’s not all you know what all the time, there will be a lot of it 🙂 But I’ll also be establishing a men’s lifestyle/entertainment web destination, something that should actually have a lot of variety. And a whole lot of other stuff as well …
I case you are wondering, the wife doesn’t mind at all — she’s most definitely amused, but also happy with the pay rise and the new responsibilities, and I’m trustworthy 🙂
Needless to say, I’m very impressed with the whole situation 🙂
