Hi everyone. Since it's my first company experience could you educate me about office policy.
I have been hired as a design engineer in a group that most people are very experienced. I am doing OK. and getting paid as a new hire. I have a nice boss but the project that I am working on is between two groups. I feel that the other group is not very happy and sometimes I hear their complains. The reason is that they expected their boss to hire a well experienced person. It's getting into me. What is your feedback?
In a new job specially that you are not experienced it is very easy to get anxious about what others are thinking all the time. The fact that the other group are grumbling that your boss didn't go for an experienced person is not your problem. When your boss hired YOU over anybody else, he wasn't thinking (I hope) that she looks nice, he was thinking she can do the job. So be confident, believe in yourself and you can do anything. Stop second guessing what others are thinking of you, as I said in an earlier email, the best way to assess is to be honest with yourself and if there are any weaknesses don't deny them or blame them on others, improve YOU.
Some tips to success in work place
Hope these are helpful
Goosd Job : )
I bet you that the other group would have complained anyway even if your boss hired an experienced person!! There are always some group of people at work area (no matter what type of work area it is) who like to complain. They're not happy for some other reason that has nothing to do with you. I think there are different ways to handle this situation but if I were you, I would just ignore them and try to be positive and happy about my life and work. Pretty soon you'll find some good friends at work, and the other group will find some other subject to complain about. Be honest and do your best to do your job and at the same time take care of yourself! Being new is not always easy, there are always some dishonest people at work who might blame the problems on the "new person"!
Thank you very much. I always appreciate your comments.
