Time at FFL: I started in 2006 and just celebrated 6 Years.

Favorite Memory at FFL: I would have to say that it would be a combination of several office pranks, from using foil, post-its, Cheerios, and various other items as office decorations, to convincing co-workers that TPS reports do exist and “why haven’t they completed them, with the proper cover sheets.” Post Filing Window office bowling, with energy drink cans and a stress ball, has to be at the top of the list as well.

The need for writing skills will likely always exist, whether it be with pen and paper, or with a stylus and iPad.

Best E-rate advice you could fit inside of a tweet: Organization and documentation. Spend the time up front, with keeping good records and saving any and all documentation that you think may be relevant, in an organized fashion, and it will save much time and many headaches throughout the process and in the future.
