Goodbye Mrs. Kravitz! Kinda....

No, I have not committed a felony. I did not take Mrs. Kravitz for a swim with concrete boots. It is not quite official, but I am getting a promotion! The hiring manager told me he was working on the offer letter yesterday, so it is pretty official. Right now I am a Help Desk Technician who answers phones all day and remotely assists customers with software/desktop type issues. Yes, I am the one who asks those dreaded words "have you rebooted your computer?" While I like my job, I am so sick of answering phones and even sicker of Kravitz. But as of January 20th, I am starting my new adventure. I will be in the same office but a different job, different desk, different team, and different company. Computer Support on the Air Force Base is awarded to companies via contracts. Different companies team up to bid on the contracts and once they are awarded the work, their employees (me) do the work on base. This is why I am switching companies, positons, but yet working in the same place. Clear as mud? I will be doing video teleconferencing, administering blackberry accounts, equipment custodian duties, and learning Sharepoint products. I am super excited and hoping my butt will stop expanding from sitting on the phone all day! LOL! As an added bonus I will be sitting out earshot from Kravitz. So you could say this is a promotion with an bonus.....my sanity!
