right, I have finished my project and left out w/o nothing to do at work for a few of weeks now. Since I was at the client side right since I started working here, I had to find my way arround the building, who to talk to and all that...Now the problem is that, since I work for a big IT co nsultancy, and my profile as designer is only a very minority (inside) as they only hire designers when they need. Now they have offered me a week ago something as a "project", which they said that had nothing to do with my profile...I dont think I had a choice, however a week on this and I have not given any insight into what the hell is going to be, the only think i keep asked to do is to enter inside the huge amount of the clients internal applications with a number of references, so I can follow some process, copy the state into and excel file!!!!! Yeah I know, fuck this, I have no Idea who my responsible is, I feel lost and like a 20 years old kid that just finished UNI (respect) and I want to kill someone...

Janne, you are out of order!
has anyone experienced something similar, I am not sure what are they trying to do.....
i once had an out of body experience..
Your description of the project was sublime.
I hardly felt like I knew you.
just try turning your life off and on again
Get out now if they are starting you on data entry jobs.
Well noRGB, coming from a design background, hired as a designer for a design project, after 18 months, i am imputing data in Excel files...thats it!
What? How fucking dar they. Don't they know who you are?!
Treating you like a 20 year old graduate, giving you a project not in your job description which requires you to input data into Excel files. The nerve!
valentim, how old are you?
if you are as old as i am (32) you should already be a celebrated designer like i am. Haha, next thing you are going to tell us you don't live in a lofty penthouse like most of us with one nice Audi or Porsche in the garage, like most of us have.
I say be happy they want to keep paying you, sounds like they're putting you to at least some use. why don't they just cut you and outsource your time into someone significantly cheaper. sounds like you could be more appreciative
ask them if you are allowed to choose a font of your liking and colors too, it gives it a serious design related dimension me thinks..
Apparently a mate of a mate of a mate told me, the estrogen content in the national water supply of Spain is really high, and it turns grown men into winging pussies.
hey who turned the images off?
I have an excel file I will share, I made it for web dimensions and columns and such, i'll post it
hey, you can even add border art to excel spreadsheets - adding a greater dimension of creativity!
Act like ya heard!
