So we're 3 months in to the job now and it has been hectic. Taking a week off at the beginning of January when all our clients needed to complete their tax returns was probably not the best idea. But then again i'm only human and jumping out of planes and snowboarding in the Alps seemed like a good idea at the time.
Trying to sort out one of our clients accounts has turned into an absolute nightmare, unfortunately it's the client that i've been tasked with looking after. Every small job gets increasingly more complex and in the end a five minute job turns into five hours! But we've finally reached year end and can now start fresh for 2012. Now we have control from the start it should be relatively easily to manage.
I just had my quarterly review as well, it went relatively well. We created several key goals to help me improve my performance in areas where I was lacking. Unfortunately the hardest task is having to wear smart, ironed clothes to the office. My ironing makes the shirt worse!
It's hard to believe it's only been 3 months, it feels like I've been here for so long and learnt so much. It's crazy how much your life can change in the space of a week, 12 weeks of working at A* have been great. Here's to the next 12!
Stay Smart and Look Sharp,
