Last night Jamie and I were trading stories of the various people that we run into when we are at work. It is interesting to note how many oddball characters there are in our lab. This is not to say that there are not legitimate people that we do help, but we do get our hand full of people who are just plain inconsiderate, crazy, and have no damn idea what they are doing. I’ve filtered them into the following categories:
- The Average User
- The Foreign Language Barrier User
- The Just Come Here User
- The It’s Not Printing User
- The Last Minute User
- The I Did Not Know User
- The ZIP Disk User
- The CD-Rs are Like Floppies User
Now, on to the good stuff about bad stuff–or something. Continue reading “Our Typical User”
Like I said yesterday, I thought my interview went well. It went well enough that I thought I would have been called back. However, I was mistaken. I am currently at work in jeans and a long-sleeved t-shirt. It is comfortable, but it is not what I wish I had on right now. Continue reading “What A Night”
I woke up this morning after my eight hours of sleep to the realization that I had an interview today. Of course I knew that it was today; I ironed my shirt that I was going to wear last night. But, it just struck me that at 8:30am I would be in an interview for a job after college. Continue reading “Deloitte Interview”
I swear… I could do the 498 social engineering project here in the Micro Lab. Yesterday it was a Social Security card, today it is a Health Sciences ID and a WA State Driver’s License. The Social Security card just baffled me–especially since it was left in a copier.
This afternoon, I went to the Like Minded Employers Night at Mary Gates Hall and it really wasn’t for me. I didn’t expect much, but the atmosphere was something that I was not prepared for. Most of the jobs, from reading online and in-person observations, were for consulting and finance. I mean, I’m down with IT consulting but not financial consulting.
So, on Friday I’ll be going to a CCS workshop on how to make the most of career fairs. Hopefully that will help. Then I’ll brush up my resume and get ready for the fairs next week.
It is so cold in the Micro Lab that I am using the heat from my laptop to warm my hands. This is so sad. Do I really need to have gloves on in here? I mean, damn. I should keep typing since that keeps my hands warm, but I have nothing else to say except that my hands are frickin’ freezing!
I didn’t get the job with the College of Education. But, a friend of mine did get it and I am glad for him. This means that I will most likely stay at the Micro Lab in the Health Sciences Library until I graduate. That is unless something were to arise in the next month or so. I’m not really that bummed, I can see the benefits of not having that job. Mainly, the ability to do my homework while at work. Yeah, I like that part. It is not that I dislike my current job, I just want something more. This is a good thing, maybe a blessing in disguise and I need to treat it as such.
