Downtown Working Girl

Well, I had an interview on Friday with a webdesign/seo company downtown Chicago, and ended up getting offered the position during it. So of course I accepted! I’m starting Monday around noon since he has to set up my desk and computer, but it’ll be a 9-5 salaried job. I’ll also be commuting downtown via the Metra rail, which means that I have an 8:09 train to catch in the morning. It’s such a perfect location. I’m going to be a block north of Millennium Park, which of course if any of you have been to Chicago, is where the huge-ass mirror-like bean is located at. Which is also where my train stops at too, so I only have a short one block walk to my office’s building 🙂

I’m actually ecstatic that I’ve finally gotten back into the full-time job market, because freelancing started to take a toll on me. I was spending less time working on projects for clients and more time doing nothing (see: watching tv, reading books, working on startups). At least now I have a steady income to rely on which I’m quite happy about. But most important of all: health insurance! Now I won’t have to worry about paying extortionate fees for any appointments or emergencies I’d have. YAY!


  1. Congratulations Jordan. 🙂 It might be hard to get back into the swing of the 9 to 5 (everyone I know who’s gone back to traditional employment after a period off has said so), but I’ve no doubt you’ll do it with flying colours.

    And, WORD, to health insurance. I don’t know how you guys in America survive without socialised medicine. :S

  2. Congratulation on getting the job, that’s exciting, especially health insurance! That bean thing is so.. different. My friends went to Chicago and took pictures of it, I’ve never seen anything quite like it, ha.

  3. Wow, that’s fabulous! Congratulations! New jobs are so exciting. I’m starting a new job this months, as well. I hope you are enjoying it so far. 🙂

  4. wow! that bean looks like some high priced sex toys I’ve seen! LOL Congratulations on your job! commutes suck but salaries rock
