Baby’s First Blog Post
My first week as a Design STA has been great! I found the experience somewhat similar to what I did over the summer, so I was able to get into a good groove in the first couple of days. Everyone I’ve met has been very welcoming and supportive. Big thanks to De’sha for helping me get up to speed and unlocking the door every time I have to go to the restroom!
So far, I’ve been busy working on administrative tasks, onboarding, orientation, and whatnot. I got some trainings done for UT, learned the ins and outs of some tools we use here, and created a presentation deck to review some things I learned from the STA Handbook. Now I’m hard at work to spruce up this blog with my first two tasks: Creating a banner and drawing my self portrait. I started on both today and I’m looking forward to continuing that next week. Since I get up so early, I don’t see too much of the other STAs, so I’m also excited for our first weekly meeting, where I can meet everyone and see what they’ve all been up to!
Overall, LAITS seems like a great work environment and I’m happy I joined the team. Stay tuned for more updates as I grow and evolve throughout my time here.
