Christian and I both accepted new job offers within 3 days of each other!
#1: On Wednesday, Christian was offered a 1-year position at Google!
#2: On Friday, I was offered a position at Stanford's Center for Latin American Studies!
- Is your new job full time? Nope! I will be only be working 2 1/2 days a week!
- What will you be doing? Mostly serving as a task manager for a grant project: Stanford Human Rights Education Initiative (SHREI). I'll share more about SHREI later this week.
- What will Christian be doing at Google? He'll be providing Google user support for Google Business Apps. Side note: Stanford just signed a contract with Google to use Google Apps for our calendaring and email hosting, so it was meant to be. ;)
Making this jump was huge. Christian's position is a 1-year position, and mine is a 3-year position (contingent on grant money), so I'm sure you can imagine the anxiety that accompanied our decisions.
We prayed about it. I ran the numbers...over and over and over (as I am prone to do). We prayed about it some more. And then we decided to take the leap, trust our cape, and make it happen.
Christian starts his new position a week from Monday, and I start mine the week after (continuing part time in my current position until a replacement is hired).
I can't wait to tell you more about my new job. For now, I'll just leave you with a picture of Bolivar House, where I will soon be spending (half of) my days. Aren't you jealous?
