I am now, according to the signature that was set up on my email, a Technical Sales Representative. This means that instead of being outside in the heat, humidity, grease, dirt, and oil, standing on concrete all day, and lifting heavy things, I now get to wear nicer clothes, sit down in A/C, have a desk and computer, and slightly more flexable work conditions, and the heaviest thing that I have to lift all day is probably a stapler. (no, it's not a red one...)
I've kinda been thrown in the deep end, with a half-eaten life preserver, and told what to do to tread water. What better way to learn! But I am having fun, and most of the guys upstairs are willing to give me a hand when I get questions that I don't know, (which at this point, are most of them!) I answer the phones/faxes/emails that customers give us, wanting to either just buy some fittings or design a whole power system for them. I know it might not sound like much, but I'm enjoying it, and that makes a lot of difference.
If you don't know and want to see what we do, go here: http://www.southcott.com.au/ Ignore the Cycles part. Our branch doesn't really do them, although I CAN get them if requested. That's about it.
