You've probably been aware of my recent love affair with Ted Baker.
If not, let me recap it for ya real quick. Ted Baker London, a 'no ordinary designer label' company has been my favorite brand for a little over two years. I first discovered it whilst doing a scholarship project for FIDM and since then, it has been my goal to work there.
Back in April, when Mom and I first visited San Francisco, we popped into the Ted Baker location on Grant Avenue and made quite a connection with a gal named Chelsea. Well last Monday, I popped in there and guess who was there? Chelsea! We chatted and caught up, and coincidentally, they were hiring and the manager was there.
Well, the rest is history. I interviewed there last Thursday and had quite a connection, and then a second interview today, where I was told officially I was now part of the Ted Team!
It's a dream come true for me, really. And things just connected so well, and the opportunity came together so smoothly.
I'm very pleased. There was celebratory coffee consumption, a long girlish chat to my mom, and lots of smiles.
My day began with a proper That '70's Show episode, one that coincidentally featured Red Forman and his interview tactics:
Pumpkin Cheesecake Latte beforehand to calm my butterflies..
And of course, my favorite part of the day: dress up. I probably spent hours in there trying on over a dozen garments, having fun with the staff and getting a feel for the fit. It's all part of the job!
I ended up buying a lovely dress and necklace.. Again, it's for the job! And here, Chelsea and I share smiles.
What a day!
