Today marks my last day at T3 Communications/ITVantage. I have mixed emotions about all of this. If I could describe how I feel in one word, it would be “bittersweet.”
After graduating with my master’s degree, I spent months looking for a job, and eventually I was hired as the marketing coordinator for T3 and ITVantage. The job came with a lot of difficulties and struggles, and at times I just wanted to quit. There were days where I thought “I can’t take this anymore.” But at the end of the day, it all made me a better marketing professional.
I was forced to step outside of my comfort zone to learn all about telecommunications and IT (two fields I knew nothing about). I was tasked with projects that most entry-level coordinators would never see, like writing content for an entire website. But I did it all. I pushed myself to learn new skills and to implement those skills on the job. I wasn’t perfect, and I certainly made my fair share of mistakes, but I never gave up.
I’m so grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given at T3 and ITVantage, and I’m so thankful that my boss took a chance when he hired me. I can only hope that I didn’t let them down, and that my work mattered. I want nothing more than to see them succeed (and to be ranked #1 on Google).
I’m excited for this next chapter of my life, but it’s bittersweet leaving my first job behind. Thanks for the memories, T3 and ITVantage. You’ll be missed.
