How was your new job?

Oh hi!

Playfulfoodie

Well, my first week of work has been a week of ups and downs! I haven't felt productive at all, but people keep telling me that's normal. I have felt overwhelmed and as though I can't ever get there and I have had a few moments of familiarity "Hey, I think I can definitely learn that!".

I might write more about it if I can ever get my head on straight again. Once I sort through all of the mess and different feelings. Once I am able to think again. Once my head isn't filled up to the brim.

For now though, I want something else. I need something else. I need YOU to tell me how your first day / week / month at your new job(s) was/were. How easy / hard it was. How long it took you to feel like you belonged. I just need your experiences.

Give me some reference points. Tell me what's normal. I could use the examples.

Thanks!

My first week in my work place was a bit confusing, you know when everyone look at you, while doing performing their duty, they will be like, that you din need it here, it's belongs to to your colleague, as if a proper induction was not taken okay, and you became so confusing, what I did was, I get up and go to the cafeteria and clear up my head, a little, have some snacks and yogurt.
But as times goes on, I became to master everything within me, till it brings the best of me

That's a good idea! I took a few walks the last two days, which helped to clear my head a little. Have to remember to keep doing that :-)

After one week, it's hard to believe I'll be able to master everything I need to. Hopefully I'm wrong!

You would master everything, it just a matter of time, one thing for sure is that, you don't have to push yourself too hard, let it roll on a normal time, believe me you will be a master of it, once it is times

In any place I have worked the first few weeks are a non productive fog. You will be laughing in no time

It was 1982! For the job I bought clothes with the shop "HIJ" in Utrecht including a tie and I felt terrible. I had not much money ofcourse so I bought cheap stuff and must have looked stupid. I remember further that the day went by pretty quickly so I had enough work to do that first day. Before you really contribute takes a while depending on the kind of job ofcourse.

Ugh, first impressions! I'm glad that day is over, although... with the working from home thing, there's still plenty of people to see for the first time.

That's true. It's kind of a frustrating time until then :D

It's pretty normal for the first week to feel out of place.

Mine was way worse, for the first month I felt so tired and depressed and it only just started changing.

You will feel better in time but if you don't then it might not be the job for you.

I'm sad to hear that it was like that for you. For me, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one and it can still change. Thank you for sharing your experience!
