Seven ways to make the most of your new job
Acknowledge that it is a big change
Beginning a new job is widely considered to be one of the top ten life-changing (a.k.a., stressful) events. Like getting married, divorced, or having a baby, starting at a new company has a way of significantly altering your day-to-day life.
A different job means a new role, but it also means many other considerable changes a different company, a new manager, a foreign culture, new schedules, and a different benefits package to learn. The changes can be overwhelming. Even the seemingly small aspects of starting a new job (the commute, who to have lunch with, finding the restrooms) can cause some stress.
