Passed My Peer Review

Now I don’t have to stress over whether or not I’m keeping my job. I wasn’t really worried but it’s nice to have it out of the way. The peer review was basically me in a room with the manager and 4 other experienced techs and they were allowed to grill me on any parts of the job I should know. They don’t expect 100 percent but you need to have a good handle on most things. It went quite well for me. The co-worker I carpool with went before me and it was getting close to the end of the day so I think they really wanted to get out of there. They asked me some tough questions but didn’t get into other things I was prepared for.

So now instead of being an Associate Technical Specialist, I am a Technical Specialist! That means a raise plus the raises I get from my certifications will go into effect. Maybe I can finally stop paying bills and save / spend some of my money on fun stuff! Like building a NAS.

On another note, I’m heading to New York this weekend for the official launch of Vista and Office 2007. My first time in the city and I’m practically staying in Time Square. I’ll most likely be working the whole time so not much time to play but I’ll write about it when I get back.
