Cubicalized [Thursday, May. 29, 2008, 9:07 pm]
I have a job!
It's something I interviewed for last Friday, and on Tuesday I got a call saying someone else had been selected. Which didn't surprise me, but I thought that position looked good and I kinda wanted it.
Right now I'm just a temp, but it's certainly better than nothing. I even get my own workspace and computer, which is awesome. I know, to most people that might not be exciting, and as a long-time Dilbert-reader, I wonder if my own cublicle is something I really don't want... but I like it for now :-) The other "real" jobs I've had have been communal space - cashiering, baking, sorting mail... it feels more personal now.
I'm working at MNET Mortgage. I can probably say what I do, just not too many details. Right now I'm learning about loan files - sorting through them, organizing them, learning to recognize documents. It was overwhelming at first, but I picked up on a lot the first day, and I think I'll get the hang of it in not too long. It's very OCD-friendly, which is nice ;-)
Technically I'm actually working for the staffing center - I work at MNET for 90 days, and they decide whether or not to hire me permanently. Fingers crossed! I'm just going to work hard and see where that takes me.
