The last two weeks have been a whirlwind! Starting a new job is exhausting business.
Then we gathered into a big conference room to listen to presentations and got a glimpse into what our job will entail. After a morning of presentations, it was time to hit the park for lunch and a scavenger hunt.
After the orientations, it was time to get down to real business. While the first few days had me swirling in a cloud of fantasy, I quickly set back down on earth. There are deadlines meet, tasks to be completed, programs to learn, reports to create, schedules to be managed, and the seemingly never-ending IT issues. For me, starting a new job has always been very exciting, but also very overwhelming. I've heard the first couple weeks are the hardest and I have to agree. Learning new faces and names, processing the information overload, and finding a groove takes time. I'm sure as things get settled in it'll be all on the up and up.
