Elected, selected, same difference, right?
My initial idea with this goal was to step out of my comfort zone and find a new area where I could show some leadership about something. And I certainly did that. Why? Starting October 26, 2015, I’ll be in a new job at Mount Holyoke College as the Director of Research & Instructional Support. I’ve been at Wellesley College for almost ten years now and have had a lot of different roles there in that time. I wasn’t looking for a new job, but this position was right up my alley. So I applied, interviewed, and was offered the position. That sure counts as trying to get “elected” to something in my book!
