I just had an exciting conversation about some potentially really cool career opportunities with one of the department heads at my job. I work at an art house cinema, in a great job (especially when you consider how few jobs there are in the arts, and the years it took me to get here.) But my particular job is press-related, more than film-related, and my background is in film.
A few weeks ago, one of the film programmers found out that my background is film, and earlier this week we had lunch to talk about possible career paths in programming, which is much more in line with what I’d like to end up doing. So she talked to her boss, who talked to my boss, and they’re talking about giving me some programming responsibilities! I’d be working with someone who is very experienced in the field (and a bonus, I already know her and we got along well when we did some work together earlier this year) and very well connected. This could be so awesome.
So GT friends, what is good and exciting in your world?
