The first month officially full time is over. And what a difference from the last first month officially full time. I was given a desk and actual direction and things to do with deadlines, asked for my opinion. There were meetings that required my participation, and sometimes even my lead. There was always something to do (whether I wanted to do it or not). I was pulled off assigned tasks to work on special projects. There was no document describing the Last Known State of certain projects, but I wasn’t left alone and expected to figure out what to do.
