Entering the workforce…

Hi there! Apologies for the very infrequent update, my blogging sense hasn’t returned to what it used to be. Just enacted a one-post-per-week program last August, hope it can actually work soon.

A belated Eid Mubarak to you if you celebrate Eid, hope it helps make you a better person. As for me, I’m a greater guy when I can eat at daytime, haha!

Now for something related to the post title. For two weeks now I’ve been working for this company:

Leo Burnett

Leo Burnett is an advertising agency based in Chicago (but of course I work at the Jakarta branch… for now 😛 ). My job as a Flash Programmer isn’t programming per se, but more to get involved in the creative process from a technical standpoint and communicate the project with the vendors (outsourced developers). I’ll be using my knowledge to recommend the best way to implement the creative ideas that will, in LB’s words, “transform human behavior.”

The work hour is relatively flexible, and we can wear anything we like (presumably within standards of decency). But I guess that’s common practice in creative companies like this one.

Since the office is in Jakarta, I’m now living in my hometown again. I actually had to hire a small box truck to move from Bandung! However, I’ll still visit Parijs van Java frequently, not the least because there’s someone to see there 😉 .

It’s my first job (outside my old campus), and I hope it can be a beginning to a great career. Wish me luck! 🙂
