That’s the alarm, if I haven’t already woken up before it. It’s time to hydrate, and get ready for the day.
I’m either out for a walk around the suburb, or running to work off the food from yesterday!
I’ve showered and am dressed for the day. I down breakfast while catching up on what’s happened overnight, whether that be social media or news.
The bus to work is packed as usual, but it’s not too long before a short leisurely walk to the office.
Instantly power on the laptop, and complete a check of yesterday’s work. This ensures that the basis for the work we do today will be in-line with expectations. I’ll have tons of emails overnight as well, so it’s time to clear through them.
Small video catch up with the other grads from my cohort. I don’t see them too often in the building, so it was a happy coincidence that we were all in together today! Good bunch.
From here on, various checks and BAU tasks will take priority (not that they don’t before 11:00 AM, it’s really a whole day thing). I’ll sometimes take time to sit with my supervisor to check my understanding of a process, as well as learn something new.
I’ll sometimes have bits of work that come from areas outside of Investment Operations. It’s a good opportunity to network and meet faces around the business I haven’t seen before.
Wrapping up with checks and work, making sure things are ready to go again! The investments world is constant, so there’s always something new to see and face tomorrow.
