New Changes

Yesterday was the start of something new for me at work. A couple of weeks ago, my manager had approached me with a possibility of a new position in his team. This meant leaving the customer support area: not answering phones, troubleshooting issues for numerous applications, etc. It also changes my whole work schedule. I used to work weekends/evenings, but now I will be working weekdays from 9-5. I’m still in transition this week, and then hopefully we’ll start to do more around mid-July.

The new position? SharePoint System Administrator. What is SharePoint? My understanding is that it’s like a hub a company needs for collaboration of documents, calendars, emails, etc. in one place. Here’s a video of SharePoint in Plain English. I will hopefully get in some training in the next few months.

So, the next couple of weeks were busy. I participated in interviewing some candidates that will be my partner(s) for the team. All of the candidates were good; they had great credentials and would prove to be a valuable asset to the team. However, we could only choose two, and we finally started the hiring process for the ones we chose.

It’s been very exciting so far. A really big adjustment (I’m not a morning person), but I’m looking forward to a new adventure!
