For a first day. On a scale of 1 to 10 in boredomness? It was a 53.
We were given 2 documents to read. One was 86 pages long and read like a tender response. The other was a Service Level Document stating what was expected of the company on site.
BORRRRINGGGG. It’s like reading a random page of IT jargon. I can’t even remember examples because I seriously didn’t take any of it in. I was busy thinking about more exciting things…..
Fortunately that was just Day 1 and we had no PC access, no building pass and no work.
Tomorrow I attend a meeting with the outgoing Lotus Notes Team, and my work will begin.
Throw me in the deep end. I can doggy-paddle 🙂
6 people started with me today. 2 of them were geeks of the highest order.
- Mid 20’s
- Home Computer Networks in EVERY operating system connected via wireless bridges….blah blah blah
- University Graduates
- Ex-Public Service
- Talking LOUDLY about World of Warcraft Guilds in Canberra
I had good chats with a couple of the other guys, and the guy I will be working with seems like a decent pom.
Looking forward to getting my hands dirty and meeting the clients…
…and leaving the geeks waaaayy behind.
