Tis the Season of Joy

Posted by Shane

Hey everyone. Long time, no post, but I been in NY for back over the month working again at the store and let me tell you knowing from how things happen at Corporate and how it filters down to the stores is amazing. It didn’t take me that long to re-acclimate myself with the store operations. I think the thing I missed the most was the untied lunches. Oh well.

Though it’s the holiday season work is going good. Usually I am pretty quiet around this time online, but I gotta say that I am thankful for a full-time job as we know most of the country is looking for part-time and full-time work, I had this full-time spot barley at the last minute when it was offered, I took it just to get my foot in the door. Things can only go up from here.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I will talk to you all soon!

I started my return trip back to NY Thursday morning in St. Paul, MN. For my return trip back home I decided to go “non-traditional” in my travel plans opting for the more scenic route. I started this leg back in NY in the start of the month flying back to MN for my last 3.5 weeks in MN. But for the ride back I wanted to go the good ol’ scenic route taking in the sights. Here I come Amtrak! And as you might have guess… I am back home in NY for a while.

On the way back home…

Posted by Shane

Tonight is my last night in good ol’ Minnesota. For the past 8 months I been up here working with the Best Buy Retail Web Development team, part of the overall Communications Team for the entire US Store Operations, as a paid-intern/paid-corperate employee working on website design and other fun projects.

With all the ups and downs I have had personally while up here it’s still been a challenge and it’s hard even though I lived away from home since I was 12 years old.

This experience I had gained from this work and the amount of confidence that I have in myself has really been boosted in a way that I know that I have the stuff that Fortune 500 Companies are looking for in a decided hard working programmer. I have gotten nothing but compliments today from the entire leadership team within my department and the co-workers I work with. I said my good byes to all the full-time corporate employees who I grown to be good friends with and will take the experience of what goes on in the Corporate world back to my store and in life to better help people.

If things turn out good, I will be back up here starting in January 2011 to help out with more projects and help inspire others that anyone can make a difference.

Thanks Minnesota for all the fish!

In Twins Gear

Posted by Shane

So here I am in my Twins hat with my manager who I lost the bet with. It would have been better to be wearing a Yankee hat today.
