Not-so-unemployed any more
If you've been watching updates on my Facebook profile in the last two weeks, you likely know that I am gainfully employed -- again.
As of today, I started as the Communications Officer for the Fort Frances Chiefs Secretariat, which is the political arm of the Pwi-Di-Goo-Zing Ne-Yaa-Zhing Advisory Services. The negotiation team (which, according to my coworker Patrick, I am now a member of) is negotiating the terms of an Agreement-In-Principle for the eight member reserves to take over jurisdiction for educating their children.
So, what that all means is I'll be doing a bunch of travelling to the reserves, as well as off to Ottawa, Winnipeg and/or Thunder Bay for negotiation head table meetings, as well as training and networking trips as part of the chiefs' team. Day one was cool (as was the fact that they ordered me a new MacBook Pro), and I think it's going to be both a great place to work, as well as a great learning experience.
By the way, school continues to suck. Exams suck. I write one in two weeks, and fly to Ottawa for meetings two days later. Argh.....
