Employment

Today I official accepted a position with Medstat. The position was actually offered and verbally accepted on Wednesday the 26th, and then yesterday, Thursday the 27th I received the formal offer via UPS, but seeing as I received it after normal business hours I had to wait until today to formally accept.

Below is some information about Medstat that I took directly off their website.

Medstat is a healthcare information company that provides market intelligence and benchmark databases, decision support solutions, and research services for managing the cost and quality of healthcare. The company applies these capabilities to improve policy and management decision making for many of the nation’s leading employers, government agencies, health plans, hospitals and provider networks, and pharmaceutical companies. Medstat is a business within the Thomson Corporation (www.thomson.com). With 2003 revenues of $7.6 billion, Thomson is a global leader in providing integrated information solutions to business and professional customers.

I will be working in their data warehouse as a Computer Operator. What does that mean exactly? Well some of my responsabilities will include:

    Proactively monitoring service level of hardware, software, and network infrastructure.
    Diagnose cause of interruptions or malfunctions an resolve problems.
    Monitor system backups to ensure successful completion and resolve or report failures.

These tasks amongs others will make up my day to day activities. I am looking forward to this and am also looking forward to the possabilities this position presents for carreer advancement and educational advancement. I will be starting February 7th, so until then I am still technically unemployed, but at least now I can enjoy my unemployment with the knowledge that the end of it is near.
