Interestingly enough, I slightly groaned about working in a bank and how unrewarding it is yesterday in my post. Then the head of personnel called me not two hours later and asked if I wanted to be a buddy.
My ears perked up and replied, “A buddy? What is that??”
The bank started a new program where new hires get teamed up with someone who isn’t a new hire that they can lean on if they have questions or what not. It’s kind of like a mentor. She told me that she knew that I had just barely passed my one year mark here (May 30!) but I was so good with people that she knew I would be a good buddy. Sweet!! Out of 160 people she thought of me (job security??!!).
So later that day she assigned me to my buddy and we get a free luncheon next Tuesday at the Marriot so we can meet and stuff. I love helping people out so this is right up my alley. I’m already thinking of the little gifts I’ll get her when she hits her 1 year mark and what I’ll get her for a little xmas present. I know…I’m a nerd…but I’m good at it!!
