The past few weeks, I’ve been able to spend a good amount of time listening to podcasts at work. I always appreciate the sort of menial work I can chug through without much language processing brainpower for that reason. This week, not so much.
Photo IDs are one of those things I’m embarrassed it took me so long to really learn, and I am shocked at how logistically complex they are.
See these 5 photo IDs? Guess how many I was assigned (and assessed).
12. 3 had already been uploaded due to a miscommunication, 3 did not meet guidelines, and 1 was missing. That means 7/12, over half, were not available without client comms. And client comms are much more difficult than I thought – many of these are grad students, who I learned the hard way should be reached through an intermediary like an advisor. We have templates for different messages, but I’ve often had to modify them.
This isn’t to complain too much, but I want to say I am impressed that my coworkers like Rachel and Ingrid had worked through presumably dozens (hundreds?) of these over the past year.
I worked on some smaller tasks too, but I’m running out of time today, and I’ll be gone next week, so maybe I will append a little more info 2 Mondays from now!
