Last Week at MNP

Published December 23, 2018 · 263 words · 2 minute read

Twelve months. Twelve months I’ve spent with two teams, four projects, heaps of technology, friends, mentors, deadlines, crunch time, rewards, comradery and clients. The kid who shakily agreed to a tech consulting internship a year ago might not recognize me today; the chip buffed out of my shoulder, gaze steady, speech thoughtful and clear. I’ve been given direction and seen progress. I have my fantastic colleagues and managers to thank for this.

So, what exactly did I do this year?

  1. January -> July - QA, CMS Development for a Canadian hospital specializing in mental health in Toronto.
  2. July -> August - According to my journal, I only struggled with a preprocessor written in PHP? I was working to migrate an internal MNP system.
  3. September -> October - QA for an extension to the CMS for a Canadian bank.
  4. October -> November - Development to extend the CMS for a major Canadian airline.
  5. November - Had the pleasure of attending MNP’s Consulting Bootcamp in Toronto.
  6. November -> December - Airline CMS + Work on AEM prototype for client bid.

I sent my coworkers this note:

Hello MNP Kanata,

During the past twelve months, I have spoken attentively with each of you, and been rewarded with a heap of valuable lessons. Your guidance has enabled me to take a confident first step into this competitive and rewarding industry. I enter my next two years of University a far more resourceful, socially intelligent, competent kid.

I can’t thank you all enough for this.
