So the "sick" day I was talking about the other day was actually for an interview. I didn't want to jinx it and say anything about it. But, it went very well so much that I was there for 2.5hrs and met with 9 people. I got called back the other day and met with the CEO for about another hour.
I got called a little while ago and they made me an offer...that I couldn't refuse!

Men's Associate Buyer for a retailer here in NY.

Basically, what I initially came to NY to do and has taken me 2 years to finally get.

Congrats on the new job. So you've been in your current job for, what, 6 months?

When I leave I will have been there for 10 months 3 weeks.

This job was just an escape from when I was at Saks because it offered me a position to put on my resume and $$$. I really had no desire to work in wholesale jewelry.

Hahaha I am fortunate enough to possess the ability to distinguish my own taste from a target market.

Congratulations, SoCal, I'm sure it's competitive in New York right now.

Great news, glad to hear you are doing something lucrative and fulfilling. Most of us feel lucky just to get the former

Congrats SoCal

Can you say who the retailer is?

If not, is it high end retail or moderate?
