First day of term

October 18th, 2011 · Posted by Skuds in Work · 3 Comments · Work

Today was one of those days when a whole new tranche of graduates joins the company. As with policemen and teachers, as you get older the graduates seem to be younger every year. When I went to lunch I walked into the staff restaurant and thought I had taken a wrong turning into a school dining room or something.

All day they have been herded around in groups between various induction events, carrying their company carrier bags full of leaflets about pension schemes or whatever. I’m now bracing myself for when they start getting sat down at a desk to work because I work in the IT department and there is a very real possibility that some of them have never seen MS Office 2000 and many of them will have forgotten what Windows XP looks like.
