So there are 2 weeks to go until I am due to leave my safe haven of comfort (the job that I have had for the past 4 years) and move on to something exciting and new. Why is it so scary though?
I used to enjoy what I did. Not only was it safe and good money. It was structured, with a good set of people working with me just the right amount of differences every day for it not to get boring. That was until recently. Although I don’t enjoy the atmosphere anymore I still enjoy the sense of family that is created through what I do. The feeling that I make a difference with what I am doing.
Not to say that my new job is not going to be enjoyable or (hopefully) safe or structured but I guess it is just the unknown………
My new job is a step in the right direction for me. Through a need to earn money and pay bills I took my current job but it wasn’t what I aimed to do while at school it’s not what I spent my hours at college for. I just hope that it is everything that I wanted/thought it would be like.
I know it sounds a bit cliché but it also doesn’t seem real. I don’t know what to do to get organised for it but I suppose that it will feel real next week as I have been invited to an event with my new company to network and get to know the people and department that I am going to be working with.
My last thing I think is I want to ask any advice? As I haven’t started a new job for 4 years I would appreciate advice from people? Experiences? Stories
