When I started working for the Church in May of 2007, Jessica did a whole heck of a lot for me. The amazing thing was that she did SOOO much in so short a time. The phone line was put into my name. She helped me fill out paperwork for PaymentNet access. I had the keyboard I needed, a new mouse, a footrest, etc.--all within a day or two. In case I didn't say it, Jess--Thanks!
It has been 5 weeks since I took the job on the 8th floor (I know this because I interviewed the same day I took Lando to the orthodontist, and I just took him back yesterday). I am still trying to get everything where it needs to be and everyone the things they need.
On the flipside, now I know what question to ask, who (in general) to go to for help, and I'm doing fairly well. If slow.
When I start to feel comfortable here I'll know it's time to look for something else. It'll be a while. It's taken me five freaking weeks to do some of the basics!
