Today I ended up going to my new job!
I only stayed for about 5 hours but I think it was a great start. Although there was a lot of information thrown at me and spoken around me, I still believe this was the right choice for me. I have a feeling this job is going to be challenging and awesome. There’s going to be new projects and goals throughout the year, which is what I would like. Plus, I get holidays!
I cannot state my happiness over that fact enough. So I don’t get paid for all the days I have off, I still have them off! My gosh, I haven’t had that since school, which, granted, was only 3 years ago, but still!
So my first day went well. I listened in on a meeting and tried to take notes in order to understand what was going on. I got a tour of a couple of places that I will be working in and with. I met lots of people and got to become a bit more familiar with my new manager. And then I left after lunch and took my paperwork to HR in downtown.
Now a few more items to mark off and I’ll soon be settled in. I’m going to have my own laptop for work! How cool is that? I’ve never had that before. It may not be as exciting as I think it is, but the fact that they think I’m important enough to have one is awesome.
Yes, I think this job is really going to work out. 🙂
