Day 55 of unemployment brought not one, but two job opportunities with Clemson University. I’ve gotten a lot of groans from my fellow University of South Carolina grads, but I couldn’t have been more pleased with the interview and potential hiring process. While I may not bleed orange or pull for them in football, I know the school is stellar and does a lot for the state of South Carolina.
A week prior brought lots of mixed signals from the first job offer and a horrible hiring manager who was uncommunicative. It sealed the deal that I didn’t need to trek cross country for a non-profit who wouldn’t return my calls to answer basic concerns about moving and the new job. So Clemson bound it is. And I couldn’t be more pleased to promote a school and a state I love.
