How about a Thread about people who have or are thinking of switching jobs, and maybe even fields?
I switched jobs at the start of the Pandemic, but only recently completed my training and become a CS at the Social Security Administration. Basically, I make fixes in our system for Social Security Disability recipients. I update payments when the system fails to do so, I review Reconsiderations when a Claimant disagrees, and I request, review and complete the calculations necessary for people that are getting Worker’s Compensation, are getting paid on their parents’ accounts or have payments from multiple sources.
Basically, for anything the system can’t handle, I start the initial work, and either complete it, or let our BA team know the exact changes that need to be made.
All my teachers tell me that it will take multiple years to truly feel comfortable at the job, even after 2 years of training. We have a lot of rules and regulations, policies and systems to learn.
Anyway, @cornchip, I thought I would just get the ball rolling on this topic.
