When I sat down for my interview with Ryan Brubaker, the head of Platform Solutions at Allegient, I mentioned being interested in project management. Like any interviewer would, Ryan mentioned that it was a possibility, and that we would keep an eye out for possibilities in that area. Initially, that seemed like the empty promise of a job interview, but Allegient quickly proved me wrong.
It was clear that Ryan took my wishes seriously when, two days after I finished my new hire orientation, he approached me about taking a week-long course on Microsoft Project Server, one of the premiere tools for project managers. Even then though, I never expected that just four months into the job, I’d be starting an assignment as a junior project manager at one of the company’s biggest clients.
This is about what happened since then.
