The last time I started a new job was over eleven years ago. At that time, my oldest child was in first grade and my other children were not even in school. At that time, I probably felt I was still headed up in my career and there seemed to be so much to still explore. Now, my oldest just graduated from high school. I now feel like I am just searching and hoping for the job that will maybe be as good as the one’s in the past in pay and enjoyment. I am exploring opportunities, but more in a way to find something that might be more layoff proof, which to me is more critical as I get later into my career.
Well, a few months back, I started a new job. I was quite nervous having not started a job in such a long time and concerned that I would be able to catch on quickly and do what was expected of me. I was also concerned that I had made the right choice.
