Starting a new job sometimes entails a new dresscode. My intership outfits were a bit on the layed back side, but my new gig requires a touch of business. Corporate dressing is not natural dressing for me, but here I have found some inspiration that I thought I’d share with you.
I am so looking forward to decorating my new office. No matter what cubicle people tell you, and inspirational work space can do wonders for you creativity and well being.
What details do you love having at your work space?
I find myself longing for my own place. Having my own place must mean that I have grown up. Ascended into adult life. Not that I don’t love living with five other girls, having a massive room all to myself and low rent. But I am feeling the crushing pressure of supposedly being a grown up. With a grown up life. A grown up job. Grown up interests.
But me being me instead of doing anything about it I made a collage of inspiration for my fantasy grown up appartment.
So I got one of the jobs I applied for. I am now a Maketing Coordinator for the biggest theater production agencies in Norway. Fucking crazy.
Now I am scrabling about trying to figure out what I don’t know but need to know before I start this job.
I am so happy but so scared. Can I do this job? What if I fail? What if this isn’t the right career path for me?
I doubt I am alone in feeling this way, at my age, just stepping into the job market FOR REAL. A propper job, with propper wages, with a ton of responsibilities and talented coworkers.
Trying har to focus on the fact that they DID hire me, and that must mean that I am capable and likeable. Having career self esteem is difficult when, like me, you have been struggeling to get into the job market.
So here are a list of things that might help:
- Set up a couple of meetings with your new boss to get to know the workspace and get an overview of what you will be working on the first week.
- Try to learn a bit morw about the company and fine tune your relevant skill set.
- Get to know you co-workers. Nothing is better than someone at the office having your back.
- Buy new office stationary.
- Plan you first day outfit.
- Start your new bedtime rutine at least one week in advance so you don’t get super tired on you first day.
- Bring something personal to you workspace to make it more your own.
- Be patient, it always takes time to get the hang of a new job.
Hope this helps, and share any tips you might have!
Checked in to a lovely hotel in the city for markeding lectures and lunch. We also did this super fun team building activity where we were running around in a basement filled with small rooms with different tasks. Some of them gave me major claustrophobia, so lets just say the others on my team worked harder than me.
The first floor of the hotel was beautifully renovated with dark and warm colors. But the rest probaby hadn’t been looked at for years.
