The first week has been nothing but positive. Everyone’s been so nice, and obviously pleased to have me there, it’s almost been a bit overwhelming at times. I’m kinda used to the honeymoon period lasting until just the next morning. 😉
What I’d always hear at my for profit jobs would be “welcome aboard.” What I’ve heard at the Capitol Area Food Bank is “Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here!” It’s nice. I’m never going to work in the private sector again!
It’s a nice feeling, too, to have the sense that the Food Bank has a well run program for integrating VISTAs.
I have a feeling I’ll start getting more into the meat of the job in the next couple of weeks, and I’m really looking forward to that.
