OK, so this may not be a big deal to the general public, but it is a big deal to me. I had to wait until the announcement was made at work before I could blab to the interwebs because several coworkers are friends of mine on Facebook. Even though all teams haven’t been enlightened yet, the one that matters has been so I’m not waiting any longer!
You may remember that I recently went through some pretty intensive training in a short amount of time to cover for another employee’s maternity leave in the Trust & Security department at work. You may also remember that it was my hope to be a permanent member of that team. I felt as though I were in Limbo Land on the team because they didn’t have the go-ahead to keep me there after the new mom’s return. That had me especially nervous because of how fast things change in this rapidly growing company. If I couldn’t stay in Trust & Security, I would have a lot to learn to catch up in the Support Desk department.
I know, I know … Get to the point already!
Short version: New mommy chose her new role in life over work and resigned, which gave T&S the green light to offer me the position permanently! I, without hesitation, accepted!
Like I said, this probably means nothing to most of you (the few of you who actually read this anyway), but it means a lot to me. Without going into detail of everything the T&S team is responsible for, and what they should be paid a lot more to do (though you didn’t hear that from me), suffice it to say that it appeals to my affinity for details and being meticulous. There are puzzles to solve, numbers and information to track and record, and people to investigate. I find this work far more fulfilling and fascinating than answering the same questions again and again … and again. While that is helpful, and I do like to help people, it doesn’t give me the same satisfaction at the end of the day. This is where I am meant to be at this point in my life!
What a wonderful thing to add to my prayers of Thanksgiving this year!
