Now that I’ve been at my new job for a couple of weeks, a lot of people have been asking me how it’s going and if I like it. The answer is simple: it’s going great and I love it!
I had thought that my first few days would be slow, with me mostly learning the company’s procedures, watching the other programmer work, and trying to learn ColdFusion. Instead, on my second day there, I was tasked with creating the company’s holiday eCard (among other things), which ended up being sent out to almost 400 of the company’s clients.
The people at KAI are a lot of fun, and it’s particularly nice working with people my age (unlike at FOX, which is mostly people in their 40s and 50s), as well as with people who know about design and programming. I’m enjoying working downtown, and taking the bus every day has worked out well so far. I’ve started to learn ColdFusion, and pretty soon I’ll have to start learning ASP.Net. Probably the coolest thing I’ve done so far is order nearly $10,000 worth of computer equipment.
With all of the responsibility that has been placed upon me after just 2 weeks, I feel like I’ve been working there for 2 months, except that I still don’t know where everything is.0 People like this. Be the first!
