I've been keeping a secret for the past couple of weeks now:
I applied for a job with Marvel Entertainment in NYC. Yes, I know that I have a scholarship that says I am supposed to teach in NC for 4 years, but as some of you know, I have been really struggling with my imminent future lately.
It's not that I don't enjoy teaching, but the state of education in NC has become very politicized and uncertain recently. I'm not ruling out that career path, but I have always entertained the idea of going in to some sort of industry and practicing my art on the side. So I found a Product Development Manager job that I am very interested in and decided to do something for myself and apply.
I kept this a secret from most everyone because there are a lot of people in my life that would try and talk me out of it, but I'm just too excited about the prospect to keep it hidden anymore.
I applied mid-November and haven't heard anything one way or the other yet. The job has been removed from the Disney website. Now whether this means the position was filled or that they are now reviewing applications, I do not know, but
