First Night as a VA Trainee

Welcome to Virtual Assistant Technologies, Inc.

The first day on a new job is a lot like the first day of school. You have to find the bathroom, cafeteria, (smoking area), etc. Many new college graduates say that the first day of work is the hardest, because they don’t know what to expect. But this is not my first job, it’s my third. Somehow I know what to expect.

That first day can seem overwhelming, but knowing some basic workplace rules helped me survive the day (I mean night…  hehehe).  As it goes, it was somewhat … okay (tired…yawn).

Let me start from the beginning. My friend got her salary from her client and she invited us for lunch. It was around 10:00 in the morning when I got up from bed, took a shower and hopped to meet them at the mall.  We were four and ordered an 18-inch pizza at Yellow Cab in one of the Malls here. It was already 4 O’clock in the afternoon when the three decided to watch “Sex And The City2”. I have no other choice but to go with them. It was already past 7:00 in the evening when we decided to go home, so I rushed my way to my boarding house and should prepare for my first day at work.

Sat in the taxi’s passenger seat being driven to work on this Monday evening, many thoughts were passing through my mind. I was far too nervous and was also thinking not to be late as usual which is something I did not want to happen on the first day. This day has finally arrived and there’s no turning back.

Miss V, or should I say Ate Van and Joven gave me a tour of the place and introduced me to everybody. They were of course super friendly and eager to add new member to the team, and then, we were “SUPERFRIENDS”. I also got excited on what the company is building.

My computer was setup fairly quickly and from there I started my training. I was introduced to TeamworkPM and getting to know the website and to learn how to use Teamwork as our Project Management tool. I was instructed to sign up to Gmail and use it as credentials and create two blog accounts – one with WordPress and the other with Blogger.

That was tiring and that was because of the activities I did before I went to work.  I should probably try to do some more and explore things. All in all though, I am getting on well here. It will just take some time before I am settled in.

  2. I was very happy with the results I found for current job listings in my area and I found a great position within a short amount of time from . I also want to comment on the customer service. I had some issues in searh, and called in for some technical help. I was very surprised at the way these people handled themselves and resolved my query very fast. I will use this again for any upcoming employment needs.
