I don’t remember if I’d mentioned it before or not, but my new job closes in 9 business days. That put the close for the first month on Friday. And it turns out that days 8 and 9 are crazy busy.
Up until that point, I was doing pretty well, or at least I thought I was. There was nothing too bad happening, and I was on top of things.
Then I got hit by the tidal wave. All my centers took a look at their preliminary statements and started requesting changes. It was a crazy 24 hours when I had to get all that stuff researched and journaled as needed.
In fact, by noon on Friday, I was feeling very overwhelmed. However, my boss told me that afternoon that I was doing about as well as most new people they brought in. Obviously, I was hoping for above average, but I will certainly take it.
Now the trick is to figure out how I will improve so that next month they’ll see the changes. Because I really want to keep this job. The commute is awesome, the pay is good, and the people are nice.
