After orientation, I hopped on the train and zipped the one stop back to the Metrodome and walked over to my office. My titular boss was in a meeting so the woman who appears to be office mom for the group took me around, showed me where the conference rooms were, introduced me to a few people, gave me some important hand-outs and like that.
Next I met with the guy that I will be taking day-to-day instruction from. He seems pretty laid-back and professes to be more interested in results than process, so that sounds like a good fit for me. Turns out, what I'll be doing is a lot more describing what we're doing and/or want to do with our web sites than managing the process of making things happen. So I am, I guess, more of a business analyst than a project manager, but it all sounds fun and like something I'd be quite good at.
Busing home went easily and only took about a half hour. I need to figure out how many trips I'll be taking before I can get a subsidized pass from work and then how I'll be passing along the fares between now and then. So far, this seems like it'll work fine.
