Three days into a new job, you have know idea what you are doing.
Three weeks into a job, you have found your feet and know what you are meant to be doing.
Three months into the job, you know what you are doing, but are not sure you want to do it anymore!
This was the advice I received from a colleague as I started my new job. It assuaged my nervousness and helped me feel a little more at home in my role. I felt the pressure on to start my new job at a run and not a walk, and felt overwhelmed by the amount of information I had to learn.
I had also forgotten how exhausting starting a new job can be. Not only a new job, but a new, albeit familiar commute, a new home and the challenge of it all sapped my energy. Yet, even after a few weeks I feel more confident already and know that each day I am making progress in my role.
Having had months of waiting for the right job to turn up, I am determined to make the most of this, dive right into the new adventures this will bring.
