Usually, I would feel quite nervous when starting a new job; but it was different this time. I was eager to do well and hungry to learn.
I was recently hired as a marketing apprentice for an IT and telecoms company based in Sussex. After just completing a training course in Cardiff earlier this year, I was ready to apply what I've learnt so far.
What surprised me was the friendly welcome I got from my boss Simon Smyth and all the employees. Everyone here is nice, I thought to myself; what's the catch? After getting to know everyone it was clear that Computer-Eyez invests in the right people. I felt quite special!
Something small that really improves the work place vibe (and I believe all offices should have a go at), is that everyone in the office took a personality test and openly shared their results. We were given a book about each personality type and it taught us how to have the best professional relationship with other personality types. I found this comforting, and very useful to have when just starting up these professional relationships.
When it came to working and learning, I was given lots of interesting books and video courses to run through. I've written a few blogs and started to manage the social media sites. It's all very exciting and I can't wait to be the best I can.
I look forwards to the future and hope to help out this company just as it has helped me so far.
Wish me luck!
