Today was a bit of a rough day. Work is busy, and being off prem makes it frustrating because systems are slower even when they are working, which doesn’t help with the work load we have. I have been working some overtime of late, which is great for the bank account but not so great for the work/life balance. I am not complaining much since the extra pay and hours is better in the long run.
I am thankful I have a job, and and getting paid work experience until such time that I move on. This project is supposed to last into 2017, and looks promising that it will last well into 2016 for sure, as we are only about 1/3 of the way in to the project.
Working in an industry that is outside of what I studied in college, and what I am interested in has helped me grow as a person, and helped me to shape skills that are relevant to a lot of other career fields. I use outlook and excel each and everyday. I use a copy machine regularly, I have to be detail oriented in my job, and manage my time well. I am also using various web resources as well as programs to research and gather the information I need to do my job, and then in turn enter that information onto a spreadsheet that is clear and well organized. Lately I have also been helping answer others questions about the process, and how things are done.
I have learned so much in the past 5.5 months, while some stuff I won’t use after this job ends, other skills I will use again. In the mean time I am happy that I am able to be building my resume and be doing something productive.
