Because I was so great in helping out with recruiting this fall (easy to do when it abruptly gets cut short), I got 100 points, which I’ve redeemed for $75 in Nordstrom gift cards (I’m thinking new wallet/wristlet, mine vanished) and $25 for Barnes and Nobel, which I’m hoping to use for part of someone’s Christmas gifts. Someone must want a book, right?
I wonder why they can’t just give us cash? At my last job they used to hand out visa gift cards every now and then for excellent work. Actually, I do think that my work does have some sort of cash reward, but maybe you have to do more than read a few resumes to get them.
I had my performance review earlier this week and everything went really well. I suffer from anxiety about whether I’m doing a good enough job, but the feedback was extremely positive. Confusingly enough, salary reviews aren’t for a few months, and it seems promotions are sort of whenever. So, hopefully soon? (Though we know that in the mega corporate world, “soon” is actually not very soon at all.) Of course reviews feed into both of these things, but for such a structured process, it really isn’t that intuitive (to me).
PS: T just called and asked if I won the lottery. Apparently there is a typo in my networthiq. As if I’d win the lottery and notify him through my blog.
