After two and a half years as an Operational Excellence Consultant it was time for a new challenge: my second (real) job! I’m still sticking with the construction company I work for, but have made the switch to the IT department as Business Information Analyst. By the time you read this, I’ve pretty much survived my first month. However, I would lie if I’d say it wasn’t a bigger struggle than I bargained for. Therefore, I would like to share my five most important lessons from the past month and hope they will be of use (or comfort) when you’re starting at a new job (again).
