Where's that guy been?

Postby Patch » 09 Jul 2007, 09:34

Any of you lot who have been wondering where I've been for a while, here's the skinny..

I got a new job, which I started last week. Service Desk Analyst, for Aviva (or Norwich Union, if you're a britfag like me :D).
Whi has a fuckton of manuals, and shit to learn. I got clearance to bring one manual home at a time, to learn here. Yes, I had to apply for security clearance for them =\ Which means no pics...

Anyhoo, I've been learning those for a bit, and I've been playing FAR too much WoW as well...

But hey, I should be back for a while now :D

And only just now have people been noticing it. I've had it for aaaaaaaaaaaaages :(

But anyhoo, job, which pays about £1k/month (about C$2,200), which is relatively easy. In house tech support, which means a pissload of password resets on mondays (when the whole group systematically forgets everything...), and nothing important for the rest of the time...

I say 14.2/yr, but it goes up after the first 3 months...

Oh, and all the department heads are in house promotions as well. The direct team leader started on the desk, about a year ago. His superior was on the desk 3 years ago, and the deparment head started on the desk about 5 years ago (off the top of my head). Which means so much more potential than just desktop support...
