I didn’t have the energy to post something in the last week.
I just started a new job as a guest services agent (GSA) at a nearby hotel. The atmosphere is great, the leadership team seem like good people (one I actually worked with at the previous hotel I worked at) and the opportunities for inter-company transfers and promotion seem wonderful. So I’m excited to get started.
However, and I’m sure I’m not the only one, I hate this period of work.
I hate hate hate going to a new job in the first few weeks because I usually have no freaking idea what I’m doing. At all.
It’s frustrating to know that you will eventually learn your way around the building, and everyone’s names, and the computer system. But for those two or three weeks, I’m stuck looking stupid in front of guests as I’m not entirely sure where their room is.
Nevertheless, I’m really looking forward to working with this company and perhaps even carving out a future with it, provided I can move overseas first!
So here’s to new careers!
