Ok, so I was going up to the receptionist's office at OHSU in the Health Promotion and Sports Medicine Department, when the receptionist brought up a potential job opening in their department that my thesis mentor recommended me for.. Apparently, I come highly recommended as a great multi-tasker and as having a sunny disposition.
--It's a position for an interventionist with a masters degree (which I'll be getting very soon)
--I'd work with NFL teams and coaches and their sponsor schools
--I'd be implementing and promoting these two programs at high schools around the country: Atlas and Athena. These programs aim to lower drug use and eating disorders in high school sports teams.
--I get to travel around the U.S. and work with NFL people. HELLO?! Sign me up!
--I get to work with teenagers, something I've been doing my whole life.
--I get to be a good example and promote good values and morals.
--I travel for blocks of time.. away from Graham. We don't even like leaving each other in the mornings.
So, I'll find out about this job in the next few weeks or so.. Graham kind of wants to stay in Portland for a few years, and this job is based in Portland, so.. we'll see. It'll depend on the salary and amount of time spent away from home. Plus, it'd just be my first job, not something permanent.
Does this not sound like the most awesome job?
