My first two days of the new job, IT Manager for a local non-profit organization, are under my belt. If I ever entertained any thoughts perhaps things might start a little slow until I got my feet under me, they’ve been wiped from my head by two very busy and productive days. Luckily I’ve found I still retain some technical abilities after a few years of retirement.
I’ve already noted a number of practices that need to be changed or upgraded to make things more effective and ensure the safety/security of information. The trick is going to be getting-it-done with almost no budget.
On the human side of the job, I don’t think I’ve ever met a nicer and more friendly group of people. They’ve all went out of their way to make me feel welcomed. It’s a different work environment then anything I’ve experienced before.
So, this working stuff has made me have to pull a photo from the archives a couple of months back.
