Like all things in life, my time at Roundpeg went by too quickly. With my last job I was miserable and dreaded my time there. When I started with Roundpeg it was such a fresh breath of air. There was never a day that I dreaded coming to work, surprisingly something that I am not used to. I hope that is something that continues with my next job, but there is honestly is no other place like Roundpeg.
I was never looking for another job. There really was no need to. I have been learning so much every day ever since I started. My new position is with the Indiana Pacers, which if anyone knows me will know this is an absolute “dream job” that I couldn’t pass up. For any future ‘Pegger or potential client of Roundpeg I hope this blog can show you about my time here and show off the special place that is Roundpeg.
A little like Cheers
This is something that I didn’t understand at first (mainly because of my age and never watching an episode of Cheers in my life), but the more I heard Lorraine talk about it, the more it started to truly make sense. At Roundpeg we all have our little quirks. We like to act wacky and have strange conversations, but in the end, if you arrive at Roundpeg you truly feel welcome. This is not like a big corporation that will most likely forget your name or a place that will make you feel intimidated. Instead, our door is wide open and we really want to help you and your business.
Benny and Clyde
I will be the first to admit, I am not a cat person. I was really worried about that when I started here. One because when I was younger I had a slight allergy to cats and two because cats are MEAN! At least every cat I’d ever met until Roundpeg was a jerk (which isn’t that many). Thanks to Benny and Clyde, I can now say that I like cats. Although Clyde made working on the computer a little tough at times, I still loved her. Don’t get me wrong, I still am very much a dog person. But if my future wife ends up being a cat person, I guess it won’t be the end of the world.
Cheese Day and Cupcakes and Candy, OH MY!
Along with being so welcoming, Roundpeg has a very laid back and fun atmosphere that I will really miss. Cheese day is probably the weirdest thing I have ever heard of, but man is it great! Once a month, our weekly strategy meeting turns into a cheese tasting. I never realized how many cheeses there are in the world. Although my time is being cut short with Roundpeg, I plan to continue my journey toward becoming a cheese sommelier.
The little white house is cozy… OK, it is small and we all work within a couple of feet of each other. This makes for a great team environment and bonding. Every day starts with a Family Feud question. I may not be the first pick for your Family Feud All-Star team, but I’d say I became pretty damn good through my time here which was rewarded with a piece of chocolate from the candy bowl.
Once a ‘Pegger, Always a ‘Pegger
Before I leave, I really want to thank all of my clients. For anyone looking to take on this new position, you have a lot of work ahead of you, but also some of the greatest clients to work with. At first, I thought I would have a tough time scheduling posts for companies in industries which may not be considered sexy or exciting. But what I discovered was many of these companies have great communities, so running their social media made me feel like part of the family. I plan on keeping up with their adventures, even as I move on to my new gig.
Telling Lorraine and the team that I was moving on to another job was very tough for me. I really, really enjoyed working here. To be perfectly honest, I most likely would not have this job if it wasn’t for Lorraine and Roundpeg. I am eternally grateful for her and what she has done for me. When I told her I was leaving, she was, of course, disappointed, but she made sure I knew that I will always a ‘Pegger. “The door is always open for you,” she said. “Feel free to drop by for a cheese day.”
I think that is a truly amazing thing. So even though you won’t be hearing from me every day, I don’t want to see this as a goodbye. But instead, I will see you later fellow ‘Peggers.
