…on this date, I began to work on staff for Verity Inc. I had been a contract instructor for them for several years, but on this date I began to work as an employee. I reported to Avis Beiden, and my first job was to revise a course that she wanted to roll out soon after my arrival.
It was an experience I’d forgotten — how to become an employee. I worked there for nearly a year, until Avis left to form her own company and the training department was re-aligned to match the needs of a new training manager.
It’s funny, I discovered pay stubs from my job with the Giants and pay stubs from this job. The difference in pay was almost 10-1. But I definitely liked the job in the ballpark a lot more, and I think I probably did a much better job.
