Career Move

Tue, 08 March 2005, 6:28 am

Last week I did one of the craziest things I’ve ever done in my career. I asked my boss if he would allow me to do my job from “elsewhere”. Not another office within the company – but from home, in another state, closer to my family, but further away from any office within the company. What I thought could be a resounding no, turned into a huge surprise. They are going to let me do it! I’m going to move to Rochester, NY to work at the same job that I love, in a town where my parents, my in-laws, and 3 of my grandparents are all within 2 hours of one another.

I really don’t need to be right next to my co-workers to be able to do my job as Interactive Marketing Manager. I work with people from London and Chicago, Tampa and Edmonton. We are a distributed team that works mostly from instant messager and email. I’ll still return to the Chicago area quite frequently, which will help soften the blow of leaving all of our close friends.

Wow, we have lots to do now!
