Adjusting to work after university
After university it is time to get a job, and you should be looking for the type of job you have been training for for all of this time. However, it can be difficult for people who have only ever really been in education to get used to the daily grind of work, suddenly in a career that they are expected to carry on with potentially for the rest of their lives, and dealing with the stricter rules and way of life that comes with working in a full time job. The best way to get on in your new job happily is to try some of these tricks to adjust more easily.
- Take it slow. Getting used to a new job is always tricky, and especially if you are going into work straight from education. In order to get used to working, and to your new job in particular, you should take it one day at a time, and focus on learning what you need to in order to do your job properly.
- Make a schedule. You will have much less free time when you go to work than you did when you were at university. This means that you need to put together a schedule for all of your chores and other things that you need to do, so that you can get everything done that you want to, as well as your work commitments.
- Be an adult. Obviously you are an adult, but for the first time you are in a dynamic which is boss/employee rather than teacher/student. This means that you will be left to work things out for yourself a lot more often, and you will have to be more confident and mature in certain situations, rather than getting your boss to help you.
