I am determined to do well at this job, yet the challenges still feel immense. The worst part is that I have to boss strangers around, over the phone. I felt dumb trying to boss these guys around when I am sure both of us knew that he knew far more about the subject than I did. I stumbled over my words, and often forgot exactly what I had to tell them. Even worse I have to be as efficient as possible to get all the work done that has to be done every day, and boy is there a lot of it.
|Yep, this is my life now.|
Yet I also learned something else. Jobs are not just about enjoying your work, they are also about enjoying your peers. I hope to get to know everyone there better. There are many interesting people there I would like to learn more about. However the first day I was quite shell shocked and immobilized socially by the sheer complexity of everything I had to do. Hopefully that will improve, I do not want to appear as socially inept to everyone around me, for obvious reasons.
Jobs like this one make the world go round. I hope to in some small way make a positive difference in the world. I know if I do my job well and serve those around me diligently and humbly, then I can make some kind of difference. Welp, goodbye unemployment, hello job. I hope we can be friends, otherwise it will be quite a tumultuous relationship.
