Today I woke up early and went for a walk with my mom and my dog. I showered, ate breakfast calmly and left for work at 8:30 am. I arrived at the office at 8:40 am, awake, excited and most importantly eager to learn. I apporached the front desk where a man asked me for my DNI and told me to wait for Eduardo. I waited… waited…. and waited… NOTHING. So I spoke up and I went to another lady sitting in the desk and I asked her to inform Eduardo's secretary, Rubi, that I was here. Luckily I was early and I could wait all the time needed.
1. I am only 16 years old and in the REAL BUSINESS WORLD (through the eyes of important/ experience people) I am seen as less important (because of no experience) or less professional background. When I got to work and I was early, the assistant in the front desk told me to sit down and wait; he did not bother to do something, considering I was already waiting for 40 minutes, until I asked him for Rubi.
2. People underestimate young people, therefore they gave me SIMPLE work like easy research on the projects. In the beginning I was not getting any attention which I understand since they have tons of work. But then when finally started to push the bar a bit by asking questions not only to Melissa but to the different people who are part of the team and making conversation in lunch I got the opportunity to learn more.
BIG COMPANY =TOO IMPORTANT, TOO BUSY
2. People are nice but they have so much work they don't bother teaching me things or showing me around. When Diego brought me up he introduced me to the team every one was super nice and welcoming, since all the people were lively and young the environment was very positive and fun. However he had to go to a meeting, therefore he left me with Melissa, the ejective de cuentas. I sat for 30 minutes watching her write mails, we talked for short periods since she was so busy figuring out her mail.
