By August 16, 2018 No Comments

How am I feeling now that I’ve been at Daxko for a couple of months? Pretty good! Each day is a completely new challenge, and it’s quite a change of pace from college life. Whether you’re about to jump into your first full-time job out of college or you’re starting a brand new job, there are a few things you can do to make a new career experience as awesome as possible.

#1: Be adaptable and flexible. Every day on the job will bring new challenges, so adaptability is key.

#2: Lean on your team. My team has helped me with the transition from college life to work life, and believe me, it’s been quite a change of pace!

#3: Take on challenges. The most exciting project I’ve tackled so far was doing QA testing for corporate memberships in our software. This allowed me to gain an in-depth working knowledge of a new product enhancement. It was also fun looking at this new addition from the perspective of our customers.

#4: Have fun outside of work. When you’re given the chance to bond with your team outside of the office, take it! This provides a platform to get to know your teammates in a more casual and in-depth setting.

#5: Keep learning. No one ever knows it all, so make sure to learn, absorb, and master as much as you can.

Take it from me – it can be tough to get used to the demands and schedule of a full-time position, but these tips can help boost your confidence on the job and make your days better and more productive!
