I did. It’s kind of a long story but I started by informally leading a small admin team, then was named the manager of the greater team. Got a Master’s in Organizational Leadership. Feel free to. DM me for more details or if I can help you in any way.

I am looking to go in-house and I thought all of the interviews went well at one company.

No answer, any insight into why?

I lost my last job a few weeks before Christmas last year and it took me a long while to find a new one. Ultimately I ended up moving to a new city for a job I was really excited about.

I am finally starting to feel like a person again but I'm afraid the ship has sailed on my having success in my new role.
