In college, it might seem like we get thrown into the Lions Den, but in reality it is a place to learn. Your professors generally care about your success and will help you through tough assignments. It seems like the odds are against you, but in reality it’s up to you to ask for help, and for you to build a support system. The same thing applies for your first job.
Now I got lucky. I found an amazing company, with great people right out of college. From my first phone interview, I knew I wanted to work there. It was advertised as “shoes optional” with flexible working hours. After doing my research, I also found out I could possibly be a part of interrupting the digital CX industry. How much better could it get?
Ten short months later, I have found my weaknesses and my strengths, and have learned, what it truly is that I want out of a job. I have been able to own my work from day one. This might sound scary, and it was, but I was never alone. I asked for help when I needed it and it was always met with a smiling face and great advice from the best in the industry.
