Today was my first day at Solace Power, a small company in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland and Labrador that focuses on wireless power technology. I woke up way too early – the result of nerves and excitement to begin a new job. When I arrived, I was given a tour of the office and a short onboarding presentation, which allowed me to gain some insight into some company goals, as well as what my role will be throughout the month.
The work day officially began with a “kick-off” of sorts – on the business team at Solace Power, each morning begins with a kick off. New tasks are written on a whiteboard along with a goal completion date, while completed tasks are erased. Following this, I read through some company start-up materials and began some market research of my own. What I like most about my workplace so far is the atmosphere. The dress code is very casual and comfortable, and the ‘office’ is a large open room with table stations to facilitate discussion. Everyone is very welcoming, and it seems like a fun place to be! I am sure I will enjoy my time here at Solace Power!
