New job essentials

Happy Monday! I had a great weekend and I’m feeling very refreshed starting the week. I spent Friday relaxing, then got to go to an old friend’s baby shower on Saturday! I had the chance to catch up with old neighbors and friends, which is always nice. That night I got dinner with a friend, then watched a little bit of March Madness (against my will). Sunday I helped Eric prep for his first day on the job (!!!). His exciting day might be making mine just a little bit better!

Helping Eric get ready made me remember my first day in the real working world – you’re full of nerves but also excited for what’s to come. You’re not exactly sure where you’re going, how the office environment will be, or if you’re even qualified for your job. Sometimes you’re traveling to a new city, making it even scarier to get started. When I’m nervous, it always helps for me to be overly prepared. I get my outfit laid out, pack my bag the night before and have my lunch prepped and ready to go. I like to have the necessities, snacks, mints and Advil, just in case! And don’t forget a notebook and pen so you can write down anything you’ll need to remember (read: everything). See my full list of things to have for your first day on the job.
