Got your first job? -2

You have landed your first job.  You must have done considerable job search even before applying.  Then those job interviews! Even if you haven’t won the that dream job which you were rooting for, you have some thing to cheer about. Congratulations!

Just as you may be looking forward to moving out of your dorm, you are somewhat apprehensive about your success in your job. Your workplace is quite unlike your college or school. See previous post

There is no syllabus

You will have to figure what all you need to know and do and figure out ways of learning all that. There is no way to tell you if we have mastered it.  You will have to decide how much efforts to put.

There are no group assignments

If you have gotten through your assignments in your college by leaning on your team members you will have some work here. You will have to buckle down to doing a lot of work yourself. Even if there are team assignments, it is unlikely that you will escape the responsibility of doing your allotted work.

There are emails!

“What’s new?”, you will ask. Wait.  As a student, barring some course related emails, reading emails was optional. Not any more. You will have to wade through a deluge of emails day in and day out.  Many emails will not be relevant to what you have in hand, but you will have to read before you decide anything.

What happens then? How do you you cope? Will you still be happy about your work?
