Did you choose print or did print choose you?
Print choose me. I came to Goodway as a two-week fill-in temp for the receptionist. The job was basically answering phones and sorting mail. Upon the second day, I began to actively seek out work to do from anyone in the company. I was quickly doing more than the job entailed. About a week after that temp job ended Goodway called me asking me to join their team full time. Over the years I moved up in the company to my current position as Controller.
