You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet around these parts…
I recently started a new position, which helped reinforce my decision to move to Christchurch.
We all know that social media is deceiving, only showcasing a short highlight reel of a person’s life. And while my Instagram account features carefully curated breakfasts and #OOTDs, I’ve always tried to be as transparent as possible on prairie girl musings. Honesty is what I value most in my favourite bloggers. Some of you may remember my new year blog post where I lamented veering slightly off course. If you had asked me my five-year plan, I would’ve stared at you blankly.
After sorting out my visa, I spent several hours looking at job boards, but nothing really resonated with me until I came across a posting for a Digital Marketer. The two words jumped out at me and I submitted my application right then and there. And I’m pleased to share that I’ve now been a part of the Plato Creative team for three months.
As the largest creative studio in the South Island, Plato’s list of clients is extensive and diverse. With so much happening in Christchurch, I can’t think of a more exciting place to be. The team is driven and focused yet incredibly social. The culture at Plato is a noticeable point of difference, and one of the reasons I was so drawn to the company. I tried not to get my hopes up, but after my first visit to their office, I could already see myself working there. While other job applications felt exhausting, this process felt exhilarating. Needless to say, it’s been a whirlwind since my first day in April.
That being said, with a new full-time job, blog posts have been a tad sporadic as of late. However, I could never abandon this blog as it has taught me a great deal about myself and my desired profession. Thanks for being a part of the journey! x
