They say that when one door closes, another one opens.
Well, that has never felt more true.
While I was sad to get let go from The News, I made the decision early on to flip my perspective and look at it as a blessing in disguise.
Once I did, I immediately started finding silver linings; I haven’t stopped discovering them ever since.
A few days after getting let go, I happened to get an interview (and an offer, which I accepted!) for the position of Content Marketing Specialist at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership.
I am now just one week away from embarking upon the next challenge / chapter in my career and I couldn’t be more excited.
I’ll be working in a new industry (economic development), in a new environment with a small, bright, creative team. The role is challenging and the organization seems like a great fit for me.
I very much look forward to using my creativity and communication skills to help tell the stories of the BNP.
Even more, I can’t wait to show the region who the BNP is and exactly what we’re doing to make our city the best it can be.
