The first week at a new job is always a mix of excitement and confusion. It’s a quiz, really. How many new logins can you remember? How many new names and faces? Is this the way to the bathroom or the supply closet? Add to that a new city, new apartment, (same cats), and altered habits.
It’s fun but it’s wrenching. So after all that, why do any of us pack up our things and start over again? Well, we do it because of opportunity. We have the chance to use the skills we gained in our previous jobs and apply them to a new challenge.
