Tomorrow is my first day in my brand new job that I will be doing for the next months as I am a Christmas temp in a department. I will be honest in the fact that I am actually feeling quite nervous for it because it will be the first working day that I have done for nearly 7 months and I want to make sure that I make an amazing first day impression. The first day I find to be the most important because even though I have the job, I want to make sure that I am dedicated to working as hard as possible to really show the level that I can work at. I know that it should be all be fine, but I think the apprehension is linked into my OCD and this element of perfection that is being installed into me is definitely coming into play.
I think the most important thing that I can do tomorrow is do my best because at the end of the day that is all I can do. I need to make sure that I understand everything that I have been taught because it is information that I will need to make sure sinks in as I want to make sure that I don’t make any mistakes. There will be a lot of things that I will need to learn because there are a lot of processes that I will be need to understand and if the information doesn’t sink in properly, then I need to make sure to ask for a refresher about the things I am not sure about. I need to understand that in retail work, no question is a dumb question because if I need to reach out if I am confused as it could be the difference between what level of efficiency I would be working at. The problem is that sometimes I am worried about asking for help because I used to be too proud to ask for help, but now I understand that getting a helping hand to help me understand something better is vital to job performance.
Overall, I am quite nervous about tomorrow, but I know that once I settled in and zone in to what I am doing, then I will be absolutely fine. All I need to do is show my line manager that I am more than willing to learn and can focus on the tasks at hand.
Have an awesome day everyone and I will see you all tomorrow.
