4. Your colleagues to the rescue
Despite all the good care, as a starter, work can sometimes feel like drowning slowly. That’s how I felt when I started to take on a new SAP module. It’s great to know that your colleagues have your back. When a colleague throws you a lifebuoy at exactly the right time, you feel all the more confident to tackle the next challenge. And you just know that – should you see one of your (younger) colleagues struggle like you did – you too will throw him a lifebuoy. I guess that’s how our company culture is built.
Starting to work is always a bit a leap of faith. During the interviews, you try to present yourself as good as you can. Your future employer does the same towards you. I’m glad to say, 1 year later, that what I expected to find came largely true. On top of that, it’s also comforting to know that should the job at some point become less my thing, my employer is open to discuss a switch to somewhere else within the organization.
Student no more. Consultant all the more.
