第一天

花了將近五年兜圈子,最後還是離開了。這種感覺就跟談一場長期自我感覺不良好的戀愛,然後下定決心分手一樣。心情很糟糕,但日子還是得繼續。

然後很快地迎來上班第一天。

今天的心得:早上騎腳踏車上班,居然可以遇到信義彭于晏,非常愉快。我真的又老又菜。原來我三秒鐘內可以瞬間滿臉通紅(我一直以為我臉皮很厚呢)。第一天就加班我真是帥呆了。

最大的收獲,是參加了一場媒體拜訪(新媒體自我介紹,看看是否有合作機會的場合),看到鐘子偉先生本人,聽到他親自講他一手創辦的關鍵評論網。

一早剛到沒多久,在秘書快速地用三分鐘帶我晃過一圈、把該填的表格通通交給我後,我用新的電子郵件收信,很快地發現今天下午有關鍵評論網的媒體拜訪,在還沒跟主管碰到面的狀況下我就非常想參加,大概有一百萬個的好奇的那種。

至於關鍵評論網作為一個獨立新媒體的特點在此不多做贅述,不得不說,他很實在的一步一步,實現了很多人可能想做,但目前還停留在罵的階段的東西(台灣媒體亂象)。這真的是相當了不起的事。



I am working as a social media planner at a marketing company.

First day of the job, it somehow reminds me of the first day at NTIO (I'm definitely gonna write something about it and then titled it as "Things I learnt from NTIO). The day started with secretary showing me the office and everything, signing the contract, filling all the forms and other paperwork. Everything's different here. I mean, the work, the size of company, the people you run into everyday, the nature of the work and, yes, everything!

It's not difficult to name the differences, however, it comes to me in a rather mixed way. I am saying goodbye to the old, layback days in unis and gov institute and setting one foot in the challenging, long working-hour career.

I thought the first day would be filled with orientation and meeting new people, but it turned out to be rather exhausting with new assignments, one after another. Those senior ones are in fact about 2 or 3 years younger than I am. I could deal with it, after all, I made my mind up to try something different, that's something I should have thought about. It's just that, I found myself in a new world which is in many ways speeded up a lot. Information exploded in my head along with the technical terms when I was learning new things. I lost track sometimes and I am learning to hide it.

There's something awesome about this place. I got the chance to attend a small meeting with a new independent news media founder, Mr. Chung, from the News Lens. That was really something. This guy is famous among the internet in Taiwan (surprisingly my supervisor didn't know that). I read loads of his articles and I love the content of News Lens. I wasn't aware that charismatic eloquent gentleman over there was Mr. Chung until I glanced at his biz card. Before that, I was charmed by his introduction of the development of News Lens and new media. And it was like "WOW"...... first of the job, what a beautiful surprise! I feel I am in the right place at the right company! Even working overtime on the very first day worth it!


p.s. I got an offer (PR) from another company yesterday. I apologised for taking another offer earlier in the phone call, and the lady who interviewed me asked me nicely to think it over and reply her in a day. I promised her that I would. But the truth is that I didn't even have the time to call and say no to her. Sorry.
