There was a lot I was thinking about. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find a role in a field that was so new to me. I wasn’t even sure I would like it in the long run. I also didn’t want to leave Gloat because I really do love it here. I love the people, and I’ve been with the company since there were just 40 of us working in one office. So ideally, I wanted to find a way to stay in the same company that I had come to know and love, but to do something different that would allow me to grow.
As I was thinking all of this over, I decided to check out WeGloat, our own internal talent marketplace, to see if there were any part-time marketing projects I could take on. I knew that I would need new skills if I ever wanted to transition full-time and I also wanted to kind of dip my toe in the water before diving into marketing full force. Luckily, I found a gig on the platform that would allow me to do just that!
