Part 1: My First 90 days : Back To the School

My last 3 weeks have been amazing. After my decision to return to a corporate job and in a completely unfamiliar domain, I have been having a ball. On my first day of work, I gathered every bit of 19 years of my work experience in the banking and financial services domain, locked it firmly in a box and walked into my new organization with butterflies in my stomach.
