Chapter 3. The Challenge! > What to Expect

What to Expect

It’s happened! You are moving into a new position that shows promise. What can you anticipate? On the left is the good news. On the right are some challenges you may face before the first week is over.

GOOD NEWS CHALLENGES
Your employer has confidence in you or you would not have been selected in the first place. You may be working for a demanding supervisor.
Your ability to contribute will be respected by your coworkers. You may not receive all of the help you would like or need.
Your organization wants you to experience personal growth. Not everyone will welcome you with open arms.
You are a valuable asset and the more you learn the more valuable you will be. Your new working environment (including the negative attitudes of fellow-workers) may not be everything you had hoped for.
You obviously have confidence in yourself or you wouldn’t have accepted the position. You may find you need to upgrade your skills in a hurry.
You will not be expected to work with maximum efficiency in the beginning. There may be some pressures you did not anticipate.
You may discover you are more fatigued at the end of the day than you expected. You probably were hired as much for what you can learn as for what you already know.
