Damn Good Technician

I'm a technician at a big ol' pharmaceutical company. A damn good technician, if I do say so myself.

Is it just me or is that trophy getting grainier with each week?   Next week there should be a summary of the overall leader board. With only one point keeping me from the top . . .Read More

Awesome Stuff
Monday, August 9, 2010

My company is having another internal symposium in a few weeks, and everyone in my department was encouraged to submit abstracts for posters and/or talks. Talks were to be selected from the submitted abstracts, as most symposia are wont to do.

I just found out that I've been picked to give a talk! I'm pretty psyched about it - I know there were a couple hundred abstracts submitted, and if the FAQ page for the symposium is accurate, there are only eight talks. They haven't released the whole list of speakers yet, so I don't know how many other techs are presenting. (I certainly hope I'm not the only one...)

Now I've got to work like a crazy person for the next few weeks to shore up my data.

Hell yeah. Way to go. I prefer talks to posters, as you can throw in last minute sexy data that always pops up the day before the presentation.

Nice work. And I hope that you ARE the only tech. That would be totally awesome!

Addendum: my boss introduced me to his new boss, at which time he pimped my talk. Boss-boss said he looked forward to hearing more about it.

Crap. (Well, no, actually yay for the visibility, but crap for the pressure.)
