Last month, I started a new, full time job.
I can’t even begin to express how happy I am to be working full time again. Working from home and working part time has its advantages, but I was starting to get bored.
I’m working with MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, which is a “national nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing and alleviating hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds.” We do a lot of education and advocacy (this is where SNAP and the food bill comes into play), strategic initiatives (like Healthy Meals, Healthy Options) and partnership grants (which means we award grants to food banks, food pantries, meal delivery programs, etc. across the country).
I am the Communications Manager so I’ll be working on the newsletters (first one is done!), annual reports, website, blog, social media and we’ll see what else!
Getting a full-time job was a major factor in feeling settled in LA and I couldn’t be happier with where I am. The people are great, the mission is something I truly believe in and the work is challenging. It feels perfect.
