Last week I wrote that Monday was training for my new job. Today is Monday.
Today I will meet my co-workers for the first time. I’ve mentioned before that I have some anxiety when meeting new people, and today is no different. I’m hoping that I will easily be able to introduce myself, remain curious yet professional toward my co-workers, and (hopefully) make new friends. This is the part I’m most nervous about.
Today I will learn the details of my benefits and vacation time. I attempted to ask these questions when I was given the job offer, but the details were still a bit foggy. I was given only brief and summarized explanations. Since I’m being hired for a new office and new team, the final and thorough details will be discussed today. I’m sure this will be in addition to mounds of HR paperwork I will complete.
Today I will learn the “processes” for counseling at the agency. Obviously, each agency has its own set of rules and regulations they follow regarding the counseling process. I was told during the interview that this agency uses mostly Solution-focused and short-term counseling. Today I will be further introduced to their procedures and techniques.
Today I will take notes. Today I will ask questions. Today I will be filled with new information.
Today is the first day of my professional career!
