So, a month has passed and in no particular order, this is what I’ve done in my new job thus far:
- hired someone – I needed an analyst to assist with the heavy number crunching that is my corporate existence
- been busy without being productive – basically, spinning my wheels and getting to know the demands of the role and saying yes to a lot of people (with the caveat that it may just take a little while to deliver)
- beckoned to the corner office to meet the MD – yes, I broke out in a cold sweat knowing that this guy could call me anytime to ask for analysis on basically ANYTHING
All in all, it’s been a good month. I feel valued and have been keeping my superiors happy. It’s the corporate way, I suppose.
