Megan: [I needed] those people to tell me that... a little bit of oomph behind me. My parents completely backed me up, because my parents are... my parents are huge dreamers. Then I took the leap and moved back home with no job lined up.
Ken: So how did you get your current gig working remotely for Cisco?
Megan: My boss at Cisco found me through fly fishing because I fly fish, too, and he saw my portfolio link on my Instagram, and he DM’d [Direct Messaged] me and asked, "Hey, can we meet online? I'd like to talk to you about a job offer." At first, I'm like, "Who's this guy? I don't want to talk to you." It took him three times to get a hold of me. But anyways, I finally went on a telepresence meeting, and a whole crew of creative directors and art directors were on there, and they were like, "So this is our world, and we're wondering if you'd be interested in contracting with us." And I said, "Yes, of course." And then three months later, they offered me a senior creative designer position, which I gladly accepted ... because I was really looking for a team.
