So, it's only been two months, and I'm already leading a huge project. I have a project plan that's created, and it's really exciting that I can work hands-on and lead my own team.
Four different rotations helped me in a way that I got exposed to different areas of the company.
And I got to implement a couple of programs, both company-wide and organization-specific.
So, I started in Workforce Planning and Management, where I managed the Intern Program and the Emerging Leader Program. I was responsible for the recruiting and hiring of those employees. And I was also responsible for going to career fairs and the other recruiting opportunities that we had.
And I love seeing that the projects that I'm working on are contributing to our customer experience and the fact that I'm put out of my comfort zone on a daily basis.
My first rotation, I was a business technical analyst on a project. I kind of got to see what a true BA does. I learned that they're really the liaison between the customer, who I got to deal with, who was forward-facing, as well as the developer.
And just how the events landed, I ended up in kind of my dream position and having the project of a lifetime to really help me learn and grow as a project manager.
The program pushed me outside my comfort zone. I definitely would not have went into a technical role if I didn't know that it was kind of a requirement of being in the PMBA track. So it opened up a whole new career path that I didn't even know I was interested in.
