One of my biggest complaints about my last job is that I was extremely bored. It drives me nuts to be bored. Its not that I didn’t have anything to do, but it was just slow. And I had a hard time waiting on things to get finished. I like something that’s constant with a few breaks for breathing. I also didn’t have final say on things and I wasn’t working with a team. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to meet a timeline and have something held up for review that shouldn’t of taken long to review.
I really thrive in a team environment.
It’s invigorating and something that I truly miss. The job I’ve taken is pretty much a disaster. I really can’t go into the details, but lets just say there is a lot going on and when you don’t have enough staff, things slip. I’m in love. It’s going to be a challenge and I so wanted a challenge. The office is also enjoyable too, so despite the workload, it’s not going to suck as long as it’s a good work environment.
I’m so glad I took the chance to apply to this and I’m happy that I got selected for the position.
While I really can’t talk about what I do, I may highlight some of the issues on here as they relate through environmental awareness. My career choice of moving into the regulatory realm is probably one of the best choices I’ve ever made for myself. I feel like I’m doing good when I can help clean up some form of contamination (or prevent a said contamination). I really feel I’m upholding one of the most important values of my career area: upholding public health and safety.
And that is extremely important to me.
