It’s getting closer and the expectations are getting tense. I think the Next Generation Jazz Festival folks didn’t realize when they hired First Night to handle the recruitment, they would be getting a woman with extreme attention to detail.
I called one of the workers at the Next Generation to ask a question and his reply was simple, followed with, “it’s not rocket science.”
He wasn’t referring to me. I am a generalist, who makes mistakes and then feels awful later.
The woman supervisor I’m working for doesn’t allow mistakes. So you can imagine what it is like as it gets closer to the event. She is an event planner with many years of practice and there is a lot in her head from the past. She is a task master and demands much from workers and volunteers, but the results always great, never adequate, but great.
