I’m almost two weeks into my new job, and I must say that I’m loving every moment of it! My department is comprised of many recruiters and directors and managers and such. As for me, both myself and my colleague (we are both coordinators and do the same job) report to one manager; we are his only direct reports.

This is definitely a change. I’m learning…I’m doing new things, and I’m feeling like my work is actually making a difference. Everyone is really nice. My priorities now are to try and remember everyone’s name and to become comfortable with all of the processes and procedures in place. If anyone has a question about ANYTHING, be it a request for highlighters, the replacement of a broken headset, ordering business cards, responding to emails from potential job candidates, getting a new hire ready and set up with all the system access they’ll need for when they arrive…or deleting all of their access after they’ve left…all of this falls on our shoulders. My partner has been here for 8 months and she’s an absolute wiz. She’s definitely a wealth of knowledge and definitely a Jill of all trades, so I look forward to continuing to work with and learn from her so that I too can be a “Jill of all trades”. Tomorrow I have a business lunch scheduled. Me! A business lunch! So excited/exciting.

I’ve only been in this department for a short time…but in that time I’ve learned something very huge. What I’ve learned is that I NEVER want to do what I was doing before ever again. I never thought I could work full time, but I was wrong. I just couldn’t work full time in the environment that I was previously in…and I hope to NEVER return. Hopefully after this temporary role is up, I’ll either be able to stay in the same role, or, even better, apply to and be accepted into a greater role.

But for now…so far, so good. 🙂
