On my first day at the new job, they threw me into the deep end. It isn't that surprising, considering they're a small business, and it is clearly an “all hands on deck” kind of enterprise. I was thrown when my boss mentioned that I'd attend the professional association meetings on what would be my “days off.” Great, another organization that doesn't value the association or my credentials, although as my boss is a member, I find this very surprising and disturbing. Perhaps it is just because I'm a part-timer, four days a week, but I don't know.
