A Juggling Act
Posted September 17, 2005on:
Lamp at Khrua Thai where we had dinner with the company president who also happens to be Junnie’s good friend.
I hold two jobs now. One, as Corporate Services Manager and the other, as Operations Manager of an IT company. This is more like it, I thought. I’m more used to overlapping 2 jobs prior to finally moving to the next, rather than spending months on end, in between jobs. This is only up to the end of this month, when my 29-day notice will be over.
Yesterday, the President of my new employer, came over to check on the progress of the office renovation at the IT Park, to finalize talks with the suppliers and to discuss operational matters with me. I anticipated the day to be filled with meetings so I had to go on leave for a day from my soon-to-be- ex-employer.
True enough, we spent most of the time near the renovation/fit-out site to ensure that the suppliers deliver their products and fulfill their contracts as agreed. I realized I was the only lady in a male-dominated setting, but I didn’t mind. I was excited to see everything fall into place more than anything.
The interior design has been ironed out (after several revisions, heh!), the server room is almost done, the pabx will soon start wiring together with the leased line provider and the A/C supplier. In a week or two, the rest of the infrastructure will be put in place.
Ah, busy days are up ahead.
The day has been productive with dinner doubling as meeting of sorts where we discussed about our minimal stake in the total investment and other matters. Inasmuch as we’re all excited to see this venture take-off, we made sure that all areas of concern have been covered. The big ones and the nitty-gritty.
I can hardly wait.
