I've resigned from my job to be a full-time graduate student. Yesterday was my last day at work. I worked as an editor for the Resources Development Department at goFLUENT, a provider of distance English training solutions for corporations. Resources Development has two teams, the Trainer Resources Team and the Learner Resources Team. I was part of the Trainer Resources Team. This was my little corner in the office (yes, right next to the fire extinguisher :P )...
The rest of the Resources Development office...
Oh, hi Ray! Don't let me disturb you.
Ray is a writer for the Trainer Resources Team.
This is Jem. She's a fantastic writer and she's replacing me as editor for the team.
Here's Max, the manager of the Trainer Resources Team. :)
Check out Issa, a writer for the Learner Resources Team. She's holding our work "bible," Practical English Usage by Michael Swan.
Chloe hard at work. Chloe is also a writer for the Learner Resources Team.
Anya is the manager for the entire Resources Development Department.
There was a little going away party for me...
In the picture below I am with Aika (a writer for the Learner Resources Team), Chloe, and Issa.
Why aren't you smiling, Jem?!
And here I am with my good friend Carlo. Carlo is part of the IT Department at goFLUENT. He did the artwork and design for this blog and Asia in the Heart, World on the Mind!
Yesterday was bittersweet. I will miss my wonderful coworkers, but I am also excited about being a full-time graduate student.
