It's orientation day for me at my new job with R.A. Malatest & Associates. My onboarding process is kind of scattered, since we're still working out some details on my official start date in Edmonton and the actual moving process. Looks like we're going to try to get to Edmonton for either October 1 or October 9 (right after Canadian Thanksgiving).
There's definitely a lot for me to take in right now. I'm meeting with different people and being handed lots of information about the first big research project I'll be working on. One of my first responsibilities is going to be training some temp employees on data collection and then coordinating and supervising them in the field, so I kind of feel like I'm standing on the edge of the diving board out in the Deep End of the pool.
But I'm sure it will all work out well enough. I just have to react and adapt as needed. The need for constant learning, quick thinking, and confident decision-making is part of what attracted me to this work in the first place. I'm excited that I get to learn about and study all kinds of different subject areas.
Anyways, I should get back to filling out these tax forms!
