I don’t know when I’m going to stop counting the months of my time with Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (PPL) (I feel like I am a high-schooler in their first relationship, celebrating every minor anniversary), but today is not that day. This past week, I celebrated (internally) my three-month anniversary with PPL.
In the past three months, my role as the Social Media Marketing Specialist has met and exceeded my expectations. I have met so many great people and I have been given the opportunity to travel, which I love! I love meeting new people and learning their stories, because I will (soon) be sharing the stories of our company culture, people and products all over the internet! I honestly didn’t expect that I would be travelling so much, especially right away, but I love jumping in. I’ve always been a “two-feet in” kind of person, and travelling to all of our locations and meeting these people is the best way for me to get content, which I need. I need so much content. I am like a content-hungry hyena…
I honestly can’t believe it’s already been three months… More importantly I can’t believe that I have spent over 65-some hours in the car commuting to and from work! I can’t believe that I’ve had the opportunities to go to Florida (twice!), LA and San Diego next week, and next month, NYC! It’s crazy, and as someone who loves to travel… this is like a dream come true. I just need to perfect my packing style, I am HUGE over-packer!
So, if you are currently looking for a job, I highly encourage you to apply for the job that you are unsure of. I was skeptical of this job and me being the right fit when I applied, but after meeting the people and seeing the culture during the interview process I knew it was the right fit. Take a chance on the job post you are unsure of, you never know what it might lead to!
What is your dream entry-level job?
