This is the last segment in our three part series of why I love my job, and why you should probably apply for my position. It's up for grabs, and you'll love your life! Here's some more reasons my job is awesome!
Credit Union SWAG
If you didn't know, SWAG is an acronym for Stuff We All Get. I get to pass out awesome swag at all of my events (hello T shirts, chip clips and slap bracelets) but I also get some sweet gear as well as a result of visiting various credit unions. I'm not taking pens and pencils. I'm talking lunch bags, flash drive bracelets, water bottles, pads of paper, screen cleaners, mugs and just about anything else you could imagine. I could probably wear a years worth of CU gear if I wanted to. Seriously, Christmas this year was so much easier! I got to give away a ton of really great stuff to my family (I put it in their stockings). Seriously, it's really great stuff.
My opinion matters
Novel concept, right? I've felt at other jobs like my suggestions weren't heard, or people didn't really feel like my opinion mattered at all. Think about this though. I am working with the credit unions and they WANT to know my opinion on how to reach out to 18-25 year old guys and gals around Maine. My opinion matters. I've seen changes throughout this year based on the things that I have seen around Maine. It's honestly one of the coolest perks to my job. Sure, the car is awesome and the laptop is great as well, but I have a job where people listen to what I have to say. I don't know about you, but that makes me feel pretty great!
I can grow a big beard
Okay, that may or may not be a perk, but I can pretty much dress how I want and grow out my hair crazy long and have a big beard.YESSSS! It won't last forever (because I am getting married in less than three months) but it's nice to know that I was hired to be myself and to not put on a show.
Well...You've had three days to hear about why I love my job. Now it's your turn to take the reigns and step in as Maine's next spokester. Will you be the one who drives around the Green Machine and talks to 18-25 year olds about financial literacy? Will you apply?
What are you waiting for?!?!
