Move over Robert Scoble, Here’s Shanon
Hello blogosphere! I’m Shanon, the newest member of the Bluewire team. I’m currently saying goodbye to my 4th week (3 weeks if you don’t count my first week which was interrupted by #qldflood) with Bluewire and hello to what looks like an exciting career with a driven, passionate and enthusiastic team.
The Bluewire door was opened by good friend, fellow uni class mate, business partner and now professional colleague, Angus Russell. Angus introduced me to Adam and Angela late last year where I came in and shared with them a little about me and my passion for the web. After being offered a position and after some deliberation I could see that Bluewire could be the place for me to learn and grow, both professionally and personally.
With a background in web development I entered Bluewire to assist the already talented team with Updates and Support. But as is the attitude of Bluewire: Do what you love, I’ve since been training to do initial consultations. I’m very much a people person and initial consults give me the opportunity to have a break from the 1’s and 0’s of coding and get involved with clients and engage with the community. I’m yet to have my first initial consult where Angus and I will team up like Adam and Toby used to, to see how we can help our potential clients. So if there is anyone who is requires Bluewire’s help with web strategy you will now know who to call!
My four weeks with Bluewire have passed as quickly as Cyclone Yasi over the North QLD coast. However instead of leaving devastation I’m left with highlights of what is expected to be an enriching job. Highlights like our 6th Birthday party where we raised $1200 for charity and I was able to mingle with the people who have helped make Bluewire what it is today. Or the opportunity to shape my goals within my job and have real input into the business, instead of just being a number on the pay roll. These things along with the support of Adam, Toby and the team make it a place where I wake up and want to be. It’s a job that is fulfilling, challenging and one that I look forward to where it is going to take me.
This is my first of many Bluewire blogs and I will also be seen on the the Bluewired developers blog. I’d love it if you dropped me a comment below!
