With today being March 9th, I need to pause and reflect a little bit on my 10th Anniversary at HP. I started at HP on Monday, March 9, 1998 as a high school intern. I was a 16-year-old Junior and started in Human Resources. My primary role was to update a job postings web page, using state-of-the art FrontPage ’97. I was originally slated 15-20 hours per week to complete this job. I was able to accomplish this job pretty quickly and found other work to do. I ended up being transferred into IT that summer and the rest was history.
My years of service technically begins at the start of my “Regular Employee” classification (in Nov of 2000), so this is an unofficial anniversary, but I wanted to commemorate my start-date.
