my new job

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’ve shared a little bit with you – through the #SNAP4aWeek Challenge and a little bit about my commute, but not really much else!

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. :)

    I am so happy to hear the good news Emily, I was just thinking about you the other day. I too have found a great new position working for a global organization that makes a positive impact on businesses everyday. I am looking forward to hearing more about the organization and what you’re up to!

    How awesome! I’ve been wondering what you were up to since you made your first-day-of-the-new-job post on Facebook. Sounds like a great organization. And fun duties too. Those are similar to the responsibilities I have in the job I’m in now. I love working in social media.

    This is so incredible, Emily! It never fails to put a smile on my face when I read about how happy someone is in their job, and I can tell that you are thrilled. As someone who also works in communications, your role sounds very exciting! The organization is so cool, too. Congratulations!
