I was coming up on six months unemployed, scraping by on the slow trickle of freelance pay and experiencing serious interview burnout, when I landed the job of my dreams. It was too perfect – after years of feeling bored at work, I was finally challenged. I loved the fact that I was learning and growing, and even when the work was tough, I felt confident I could learn and grow into what they needed. I adored my colleagues and, for the first time ever, I looked forward to going to work every day. Quite simply, I was in love.
