As far as I understand in a lot of tech/IT/financial roles they make you go immediately to stop you strawberry floating with things while you still have access to sensitive stuff as revenge for being fired.

For me twice its been the fun case of being sent home with nebulous bollocks about delays and desk availability and then told not to come back over email/agency.

Speaking of work jargon bollocks, I was on the bus yesterday and over heard a woman ask someone else if they had a chance to network with someone yet. strawberry float off.

That's called "having fun" or "being a human" but only for people who have souls.

Aw God, basically the only communication between professionals allowed in Brussels was 'networking'. Every night was a networking event with no enjoyment permitted, people looked at you weird if you directed conversations away from work and politics. Was an absolute nightmare.

Some good news in here (for once), my secondment to the role I secured in June has now been made permanent. :mrgreen:

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Congrats Drumstick!

In other news I'm moving over an hour away from my work tomorrow :dread:

However, I get to work from home most days :toot:

But those days I do have to commute :dread: :dread: :dread:

I actually managed to machine something today although I milled through my own cnc twice in the process.

Machines that can literally drill themselves to pieces when operated by a pleb should not be allowed.

Had a one to one meeting with my manager today. Just a standard "How're things going? Anything you need help with/want to do?" kind of meeting. Went well as I'm good at what I do and we both know it (I'm not usually one to brag about stuff as it comes off as arrogant, but when it comes to my job I know that I'm good at it). Long story short she want's me to go for the next technical adviser role when it opens up. Which means more money, more time off the phone, less of the "Why have I had a charge on my parcel" calls and more time spent problem solving the more technical queries that we have to deal with. Which would be fantastic as I love getting my teeth into something and understanding why things work they way the do. I'm a sucker for the details of things and it's helped me solve things for customers that other advisers have missed because I've actually dug into it a bit and found the root cause of an issue rather than fob them off with a quick fix.

Now we just need to convince the senior management that we need more Customs and Excise Technical Advisers in our office (There's currently four or five in the whole of the UK) and I'm hopefully a shoe-in. :D

It seems like a lot of people on GRcade work in IT would be nice to know what most people do.

Myself I'm an Electrician.

Thats an interesting one. I myself am on the grad scheme for a telecoms company. I've done a few placements in various parts of the business but my current role and the one i'm hoping to stay in is a retail divisional support specialist / manager (former at present, get the title and a car if i go permanent)

The redundancies I was a part of at work have been pushed back a few months, however I've taken the opportunity get a better, higher grade, more analytical role within the company that I'm far more suited for. Should start within a couple of months depending on what's agreed between the two departments. :D

One of my team tried it on today. Responded to a request I sent basically saying no I'm busy, this guy will do it (and copied in the guy she referenced). I was like strawberry float off, you talk to me about this you do not copy in another member of the team. Thinks she's the boss :lol:.

I was an IT manager/digital designer for a year. Now I'm an IT managers for myself, digital designer/artist for myself. ;) I've also been a gallery technician, gallery volunteer, visual effects artist, security administrator and digital design conctactor.

As for today, banana splits who are banana splits, and don't even know it, mouthing off and estranging us nice people on days out, in a co-working space of all things. I thought I was away from all of that. :( Have straight up quit the co-working space because of it, I'm not spending £100 a month to subject myself to arseholes.

I'm an IT consultanty,engineery,architechty,developery type thingy.

I dont really fix things there are others for that (service desk), I dont do boring repeatable tasks there are others for that (service desk), but I do make stuff in various products to automate process or generally make customers job easier. Recently that has meant doing Java and JSP stuff which makes me want to not live.
