5 Years!

Last week I attended a Faculty and Staff awards banquet for work. Unfortunately, Scott had to work and was unable to join me. But this year I received a pin for my 5 years of service. I can't not believe I have been working at CBU for five years now (technically I have been working here for 9 years, but they do not count the 4 years of being a student worker). I started on July 25th, 2005.

When I first took this job, I was right out of college. To be honest, I was not really thrilled to be taking this position. I had been told I would receive a position in a different office on campus upon graduation. A couple weeks or so before graduation I was told that I would not be hired in the position I thought. I still had the summer to work as an Intern and find a new job for after the summer and after getting married.

I was recommended by my boss to another office to work as a Data Technician in the Office of the Registrar. The position did not really interest me, but I was getting married in a couple months and I needed a job. So I interviewed thinking that it would be a job for a year or so until I really figured out what I wanted.

As it turns out, I'm pretty good at my job! I was promoted and stuck around. I now work as the assistant Registrar doing much more than simple data entry. I love the problem solving of my job, and the variety of responsibilities. I am so thankful that I did not get the job I originally applied for and was given a recommendation to be hired in the Registrar's Office. Although sometimes my job is frustrating and stressful, I do love my job and look forward to 5 more years in this office!
