Things I was ostensibly hired to do:

  • Develop web code
  • Maintain SQL databases
  • Act as liaison between server farm IT department and business agency (translate tech-speak to non and vice versa)

Things I have been tasked with doing in the past week or so:

  • Transcribe e-mail addresses from a hand-written sign-in sheet to an Excel spreadsheet
  • Build formulas in another Excel spreadsheet*
  • Show someone how to add rows to a table in Word
  • Manipulating graphics and text boxes inside an existing PowerPoint presentation
  • Basic data entry

The quantity of workload often increases inversely with the quality of said work. It's a living.

(* To be fair, in the process of fulfilling this request I actually learned something about Excel formulas and how to have them update to only reflect visible/non-hidden rows, so that was kind of cool.)
