I got settled into my desk and did a much of orientation stuff. I share an office with another lady. My desk is pretty boring right now, I need to decorate it with some bright colors since there's no window in the room. I have two huge computer screens, one of which is positioned so that only I can see it when people walk into our office. I keep twitter open on that one during the day! (So bad!!)
The whole company is mainly women (I think there are only like 5 men). My department has 12 people in it including myself. I report to my supervisor who I get along with well. The other ladies in my department are kinda on the quite side. I don't know yet if that is just their personalities or maybe they just aren't comfortable talking with me. My officemate is really nice though. Every day so far we have eaten lunch together. The only bad thing is that they all eat lunch at 1 o'clock. I don't know about you guys but I usually like to eat around 12/12:30. I am starving by the time 1 o'clock rolls around but I don't want to be rude. Maybe in a week or so I'll say I'm just going to eat lunch earlier.
So far the work is interesting because it is all so new to me. I was an auditor previously and before I bore you too much describing what I did I will say that it is almost the opposite of what I am doing now. An accountant works for a company and records all the financial activity and the auditor comes in and basically checks the reporting the accountant did to make sure it was done properly. So it is really weird for me to be "on the other side" of the process. Even my supervisor and I have laughed about it.
I am really enjoying learning more about the Girl Scouts since I wasn't one when I was younger. They have a lot of fun programs (with the cutest names) for girls. The "products" that I am working with interest me and I think that is really important. I had applied for a job at a science lab/health-care developer and I am now thinking there was a reason why I didn't get that job. I don't think I would have been too interested in the subject of that work like I am with this job. I think this will be a great fit for me.
P.S. There is all this cute cookie-related stuff around the office! It makes me crave girl scout cookies all day!
P.P.S. I was going to add some pictures of accessories I want for my desk but I'm too tired. Maybe I will take a picture of my desk once I get it all decorated. :)
Thanks for reading!
