New Job, New Stress

I started my new job as a volunteer coordinator last monday. I was super excited for the new opportunity and confident at the beginning, but now I feel like I don’t know anything and may never succeed in this job.

Is it usual to feel completely incompetent and overwhelmed the first week in a new position?

  1. I started a new job in January with hardly any training. I remember going home after the first day and thinking what the heck did I get myself into, I can’t do this. I was so overwhelmed, but now being there for two months I love it. Just don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions until you are a hundred percent confident in how everything works. You’ll be just fine. ❤️


  2. It is totally normal! Some jobs it takes a month or so to really get a handle, and other times it can take much longer, just depending on the place/product/training, etc! Don’t even worry about it. Just try to ride the wave and absorb as much as you can, and take good notes! 🙂
