Well, I survived day 1 on new job. It will take 3 months training til I am ready to do the actual job! mostly learn via job-shadowing others. great bunch of people on my team. the work itself will be stressful and the 12 hour night shifts won't be easy. but really pleased to have coworkers and managers who seem genuinely glad to have me there. no matter how long or short my time with the RNC lasts, I know it will add significant value to my portfolio of skills and my understanding of society in general. cautiously optimistic!
