It’s January, 17th 2012. A new page of my career will begin in less than 24 hours.Yup, I get a new job at Fifty Four Communications starting tomorrow. It’s a small advertising agency here in Jakarta. I got this job unplanned and suddenly. It’s like almost a year after I submit my application there as a copywriter. Why did I accept this job? Simply because I’m still curious about working in advertising and I feel like it’s time for me to get bigger responsibilities.Working in advertising always known for its tight schedules and deadlines but most importantly you have to challenge yourself everyday for a new fresh idea for advertising materials. One thing that I wanna do since I learn about advertising in uni is becoming a copywriter, so when there’s an opportunity to be one, I gotta say yes.
I want to share a little story about my employment at Townsquare Group.This past year has been a great experience for me working for a company which run shopping malls. Working there didn’t feel like working cause you can always find entertainments and stuff. If I wanted to shop, there’s a lot of stores, if I wanted to watch movies there’s a theater, if I felt bored or hungry there’s a lot of restaurants and cafe. The people itself feels like a family since it’s not a big company. I met a lot of people from electricians to managers. There are a lot of stories in that 0ffice that I’m gonna missed. For my team and a lot of nice people there, I love you and keep up the good work. Though we’re not working together anymore, you’re always be my friends and family.
It’s really sad to leave a place where feels like your second home. It’s really is a tough decision to leave but life must go on, and you gotta learn to get out from your comfort zone. So, I hope Fifty Four could be my other home in the future. I already met some of the guys and so far they seems nice and fun. Here comes a long night of deadlines and heavy workloads. Challenge accepted!
