Work Experience.

The past 4 weeks have gone past pretty quick.
For three of those 4 weeks, we had two work experience students with us.
Shawn and James are from High Tech High, a school down toward San Diego way.
As part of their course requirements, they have to do some work experience. Some of their class mates got some pretty lame stuff at other places (doing paper work and the usual filing), but Shawn and James landed on their feet when they picked Opto 22, they got me!
For a few months now I have had a project on my to-do list that has just never made it to the top, perfect for these two guys to have a go at.

So, put them to work I did. Kind of threw them in the deep end in a bunch of ways.
I had some pressing deadline stuff that just had to get done, so I did not have the time to work with them much.
Just tell them what I needed and why and let them at it.
They both did a fantastic job and delivered on all accounts.

I think they both learned a great deal and got a lot out of it.
It was a real pleasure to have them in our office for three weeks, and I wish them both well for their futures.
