First Real Job (Microsoft Access/ VBA)

So I got my first real job in 1999 working at Penn’s School of Medicine in the Office of Faculty Affairs. My predecessor did a whole bunch of reports using Excel that had to be manually refreshed every month. That was pretty tedious so I began converting all the reports into a Microsoft Access database. After creating a robust data structure I oversaw the data entry of over 1500 faculty records which took many, many student worker hours. Once that was complete I was pretty much able to perform what I was initially hired to do by clicking a button once a month.
