EXPERIENCE WHAT’S NEXT: LESSONS FOR YOUR FIRST YEAR AT YOUR FIRST GIG
Laura Gabriel, Talent Acquisition: As a student, I always had my eye on the prize. I had a clear vision of the future and a path that led to success.
Nevertheless, when I first started at Octagon in 2016, I did not know what path to take to find success in our organization. I did not know what decisions to make or what my end game would be. The real-world work environment I found myself in was new and different. I was given 20 years to master being a student. Now, I was starting my first year as a professional, a completely new world to learn.
My first year at Octagon provided great opportunities for growth and learning. Here are some tips that will help ensure you have a positive first year at your new gig.
