First Day of Work :)

Today I started my new job at San Mateo Credit Union as their Marketing Program Coordinator. It was a very exciting and somewhat overwhelming experience. This morning I got up, got dressed and walked about 15 minutes to the train station in our neighborhood. I rode the Cal train, for the first time, about 25 miles to Redwood City and then walked another 15 minutes to my new office building.

My first day was full of training, listening to welcoming words from some of the senior managers and watching several videos on a variety of topics. I received my new email address, my ID security badge, and was introduced to my benefits package. For lunch, I was treated to some of the best Thai food I've ever had and to a welcoming jolt of caffeine from Starbucks.

The office complex is pretty neat. It is actually a fairly new modern glass building that was constructed for a dot com start up before the company folded. On the first and third floors are the corporate offices for the credit union with the second floor being leased out to a software firm. My new office is complete with a full service, fully staffed cafeteria and a pool table.

Tomorrow I continue some training and get my formal tour of the entire building and then on Wednesday...I have a lot of work to do I'm told. So grateful to be working here. Thank you for all of your prayers and support!
