I hope your Sunday is well, my Sunday is quite alright. I am not looking forward to Monday, but at least I have a job on Monday. Something that I was worried last three weeks ago. It was almost a month since I got laid off from my previous job. And a miracle happened, and here I am working for another company for two weeks now.
First week was a typical training week for new employee, I was able to learn more about the systems, how to operate, and what procedures and workflows are. Second week went by fast, I feel like everyone there is really great, and they have been very supportive. I do not encounter any strange vibe from anyone yet, plus I follow certain rules that I read back then discussing what to do during your first few weeks at your new job, and here is the list:
- Never brag about your experience – always be humble (I feel like this is a given, everyone should know this)
- Never share your political belief – because you never know what other people agree with you or not; it is a risky business.
- Do not bring any smelly food – yea I learned this one, mental note, everyone.
- Do not kiss-ass your new boss – people do not like it, and personally, I want to stay out of drama.
So yes, these are the four bullet points that I found. If you find other “Dos and Don’ts”, please let me know, I would like to read about it!
October has been a really emotional roller-coaster ride month for me, both in my professional and personal sectors. I am so glad that this month is almost over, and so excited for what’s next to come.
