Working for the Mouse - Day 2
My most recent job was part of a CMS transition team for Union Bank of California. I started out doing data entry and evolved into Content Coordinator/IT Liaison, with a little project management and troubleshooting thrown in for fun. The site launched ahead of schedule and under-budget. Prior to that I was mainly stay-at-home mom, running a successful in-home daycare and then doing customer service. I have been involved in online content in one way or another since 1998. I’m excited to be here and surprised at how well my youngest child’s interest in Disney Channel is helping me get up to speed with everything DOL has to offer.
Today's schedule included a busy morning followed by a not so busy afternoon. Arrived at 9:15, went over the deployment schedule, then off to a 10:00 meeting to discuss upcoming shows, promos, etc. Keep an eye out, there's a fairly entertaining "interstitial" coming soon, (an example is the 3 minute Game Show).
I got to meet more Producers and team members and get a better grasp of how large this department is. My boss is awesome to talk to and bounce ideas off of, so we had a good conversation covering the meeting where I could ask clarifying questions. Then we delved into our personal lives, get-to-know-you type stuff while waiting for two more producers. Then the fun.
LUNCH at the WALT DISNEY STUDIO LOT!
Yes, I was stoked :) It's almost as good as being at the "happiest place on earth". The food rocked. The conversation was stimulating (and I learned something about Playhouse and Jetix) and overall one of the best "working lunches" I have ever had. Thank you Mr. Mouse.
Then back to the NoHo campus where my cube and computer were finally set up. I have the most gorgeous Dell screen. I think it's a 22", maybe 24". And a laptop, which I will probably start using next week.
Overall, a very good second day of work.
