So, okay. The department I work in is QC/Inquiry, in which QC means Quality Control. I edit reports and check them for consistency and compliance. That means I copy edit the text, make sure nothing in the report directly contradicts anything else in the report (I also ask questions to clarify if needed) and make sure that the person filing the report followed guidelines.

I Inquiry, if the client has questions about a report, they investigate the details and make decision based on some of the same criteria, but they have much more time to do it. People in Inquiry are paid hourly and at the same rate of pay as Auditors, but they are not timed.

Today I was asked if I would be interesting working Inquiry. I would be working a problem client, so there would be pressure from that, but Inquiry would play to my strengths. As an Auditor, I constantly have to battle against over-thinking, which slows you down. In Inquiry, my natural tendency to over-think would actually be an asset. It would also put me in a position of contact with clients, increasing my FUBAR potential by about five points. So, not timed editing, but other stresses are involved.

It comes with fewer weekend hours and slightly more office time after I'm trained. (During training I'll be back to driving in to the office every day for 4-6 weeks.) I told them I was interested, though I am of two minds about it because of having to go in every day again. Even though... well, working from home every day has made me feel isolated and weird, some days.

There is only one opening and I am not the only one interested in it, so there is no telling whether they will pick me. That's fine, because I am basically content with what I'm doing. So I guess I'm good.

Now I guess I'm going to go get ready for a road trip. Heh.
