This past week has been an interesting one. I’m at a client for the third year now. This is the first time that’s happened, which makes sense since I just began the third year of work after graduating. Some reflections on the milestone:
- The first year I was green. I had about a week of client-site audit experience to that point, so I did very low-level work. But it was interesting, because the client is a very large owner-managed firm and the engagement is complex.
- The second year was shortened, since I went to the SOA during the final three weeks of June and after that I was put on another engagement. That engagement is also coming up soon, and will be the second client with whom I’ve hit the third year.
- This year, thanks to a colleague’s promotion and another’s vacation, I’ve inherited the “In-Charge” mantle and taken the reins of this beast. I find that I really excel in situations where I have greater responsibility, so I’m pretty psyched about the next couple weeks!
As challenging as new engagements are, it’s nice to be able to always spend the same time of the year at the same place.
