So last Monday I started a new part-time job for a recruiting and staffing group that specializes in Factory Automation, Process Control, Instrumentation, Manufacturing Engineers, Building Automation, Renewable Energy Industries and other technical and sales positions.
Considering that I don’t have any experience in the field of automation, it goes without saying that I have a lot to learn! Currently, I am getting my feet wet by training in the various databases used by the company + attempting to match potential candidates with job openings. It is a lot of reading resumes and researching so I’m definitely getting my Nancy Drew on!
And since I’ve never done any work like this before, my first week was a mixture of frustration+confusion and excitement. It is so nice to be making money and to be trying something new but everyone who knows me knows I like to get things right on the first try, so this new position is definitely pushing me, but in a very good way, a way I probably needed.
A few random deets about my new job:
The office is located in Eden Prairie + I work there MWF.
I wake up at 5:30am to get ready before walking 1mi to the bus which leaves at 6:40am.
I ride the fancypants express bus and during rush hours the buses get to drive on the shoulder.
my bus ride lasts 40minutes and since I get carsick if I try to read – I rock out to music, txt my little fingers off, and take silly pictures during my rides instead – oh and I sleep… a lot
Anyway, this post has been the promised update on my new work situation.
Please excuse my sporadic posting for a bit as I settle in and adjust to life as a workin’ girl. Starting tomorrow, my next day off won’t be ’til Sunday! …ahh, adulthood….
Have a great week everyone!
