I am officially NOT a bum anymore!! :D Today is my 1st day at my 1st full-time job. I worked at this company for 3 coop work terms during my undergrad program (that’s a total of 1 year!). Therefore, lots of familiar faces but new start!
When I was a coop student here, one word describes my experience…. “HECTIC”!! I came in early & left late. The accumulated hours of overtime probably equate to 1 month of work hours. During my last 2-3 weeks of my 3rd term, I worked 15 hours each day. But with this being said, I don’t have an ounce of regret working there. I have met wonderful people, gained so much practical experiences, and even overcame some of my shyness. The countless phone calls & interactions with people definitely gave me a boost of confidence. I am forever grateful for all this.
I am ecstatic to start my full-time here. It’s going to be quite a new experience though. With my current supervisor going on maternity leave soon, I will be responsible for managing the coop student….I can’t believe I was “one of them” only a couple months ago. Let’s hope I can manage myself first HAHA!
