Up to now, I still do not know what to consider as special in my first day of work here at Aboitiz Equity Ventures, except that I arrived earlier than my bosses. I was not surprised at all because, as my father always tells me, it is the nature of companies like this one.
The feeling of being a visitor–and being treated like one, added more butterflies in the stomach. I felt like being apart from my usual noisy world–with all the chatter you hear from outside because of the nature of my previous work in broadcast media.
Now, this was (or is) a totally different world for me as this is not the usual setup that I am accustomed to. I am this type who always moves hither and tither, not content with staying in one position or perhaps sitting in just one nook.
However, when I entered the Corporate Communications department, I realized I would be working with people who know how to speak the language of communicators. True enough, it was the environment one person like me could easily deal with. I only needed a little adjustment. The people inside made me feel like I was a new member of the family. The presence of one familiar face, Andrew Mordeno, a summit alumnus like I am, somehow allayed the fears in me.
The next thing I knew was that I was required to have a computer. Patay, I thought. I know I don’t have one because my laptop got destroyed a year ago. Good thing my bosses issued me a laptop for use. This laptop I am using right now is actually a coworker’s spare. Good thing she lent it to me.
I was not able to do much work in the office as the iCSD (or better yet, IT) department had to set up Lotus Notes, the office email client. I was also issued a temporary email address, and as it appears, my email address follows the format of email addresses issued to its employees.
Thank God I have a good space here in the office. I have a cubicle where I could work on my articles and check for news stories on the group to be fed to the different companies of Aboitiz. Most of all, I thank God for coworkers who do not refer to me as “the OJT”, or perhaps “the intern”, but as “Luigi” or “Flores”. At least they know me by name. 🙂
Karon nasabtan na nako og maayo nganong dugay kaayo ang proseso sa pagdawat og mga OJT niining maong opisina Dili lalim ang proseso ug kadugay, apan makita nimo nga ang pagtahod nga ihatag kanimo sa imong mga kauban sa trabaho daw sama ka nila. Hangtod sa sunod nga gula.
Ang mga kasinatian sa interview ug pagpang-apply mamahimong mogawas sa sunod nga gula niining atong blog.
