The Other Side of the Table

new rolesSince completing the MDP program, I have gotten to partake in several things that have put me on the other side of the table and I am sure as I go throughout my career there are a lot of things that will continue to turn the tables. It is exciting and I have come to realize that something that I once thought was so big when I was in the MDP’s shoes just last year – is something not so scary from the other side. I decided this blog would be a three part series surrounding my latest table flippings: Recruiting, Interviewing, and leading an MDP Project.

Since I completed the program in June, it has been an interesting ride and I am doing things I didn’t think I would be doing for at least a few more years, especially when it comes to interviewing and leading an MDP project; however, I think that is the beauty of M&T, the opportunities that are just around the corner will always surprise you.

Things I thought were so nerve racking when I was on the other side of the table seem so small now.  I guess it makes sense, I am now in the place where I hold the cards but honestly, I don’t feel that way because M&T has been so good to me.  I think about it when it comes to all three areas I want to talk about as I am trying to be a mentor, leader, and responsible M&T Employee for ultimately making our next generation (that is so weird to say since right now the people I am interviewing for MDP are only 2 years younger than I am).

So over, the next few weeks I will be posting a weekly post, starting from the beginning with recruiting, then interviewing, and finally leading up to my MDP project.  It is an exciting time in my career and I am excited to share it with you all.
