So today marks the last day of being the "Acting EXO" at my work. The Executive Officer is a quirky name for the management officer for USAID. That position is in charge of many of the administrative functions such as HR, IT, Security, Procurement, Travel, etc. for the USAID office. The position also works closely with the director of the office.
Up until this point, I have just observed how the office and the EXO work, this week I got to live it. It is an interesting job because you never know what is going to happen or who will walk into your office. This week I had to help someone reinstate their car insurance. They got a letter saying as of today you are unisured and you better not drive your car... I also helped another person find baby sitting.... weird. More of the mundane things have been setting up trainings this summer and signing lots and LOTS of papers (hmnn, hope I don't go to jail for this one...).
I wasn't sure what I was expecting with my job here in Budapest, but this week has been pretty fun.
