As of tomorrow, I will be leaving behind the humdrum life of a web editor and reference assistant for the hustling and/or bustling existence of a web and digital project manager. This career mobility isn’t as mobile as it might have been, though, as I’ll still be going to work every day at the Catherwood Library; I’m taking over the team I’ve been a part of since 2006.
To say I’m excited about this is an understatement. I enjoy the work our team does, and the work that the library does. I also dig the folks I work with, which is always a plus. This move means more management responsibilities (obviously), but also more involvement in the vision end of web work within the library. It’ll be a big change in a lot of ways, and not just that I’ll be trading a demi-cubicle for an office.
I think it’s gonna be keen. But, despite the image in this post, I doubt I’ll be expanding my wardrobe to include a tie, a briefcase, or hair anytime soon.
