Just Got a Job with the State Government

I have just graduated from SUNY Binghamton about five months ago and like a lot of people I was starting to wonder if I was going to be able to find a job in my field. Of course I had a job waiting tables at a nice restaurant in Albany, not far from the state capitol. At last I sort of lucked into a state government job, it was not exactly what I wanted, but of course I can keep looking for something better. I had to find New York local internet service that I could afford, because this job is going to require me to occasionally work from home or on the road. I am going to get a state car, although they have a bunch of rules about what I can do and what I can not do. The job is sort of nice in that I am not going to be completely bound to a desk in a cubicle from nine in the morning until five in the afternoon. I am going to spend about four months attached at the hip to this old guy. He has been working for the department for decades and he knows the job inside and out. Luckily for me he is a pretty cool dude with a really wicked sense of humor. He does not seem to have any trouble adapting to modern technology, even though he still carries around these old books that weight about fifteen or twenty pounds each. All of the stuff in it is out of date I would suspect, but he knows what is good and what is not. So far he is not really focusing too hard on teaching me too much, or at least he expects me to learn from watching him as he does his job.
