Today was my first day at the new job, I’m no longer a Pharmacy Technician, I’m starting over in a different field, the IT field.

To tell the truth, I was extremely scared, I haven’t been working with computer for more than 3 years, to be more specific, I haven’t been working with computers since I graduated, I guess that gives me all the right to panic!!

But thank god, things today went OK, once I walked in, everybody was super busy and nobody explained anything to me for the first 2 hours, I was FREAKING OUT, what the heck I’m suppose to do, I mean my new boss explained to me that I’m gonna go through a week or so of training, but my “teacher” was doing things around me EXTREMELY FAST, I started to ask myself, am I dumb or is he trying to make me think that I am??? I mean I know I’m not stupid, but he was clicking the buttons in away that I didn’t get the chance to read what he was clicking, give me a break what are you trying to prove?? DUH!!!!!

So what did I do, I just smiled at him and asked him about the documentation they keep for the system, and his first respond was, NOOOOOO :) the documentation is too complicated for you now, what did I do, I went to my desk trying to read the documentation they have, until another guy showed up, I asked him if I can set quietly just to watch what he does to get myself familiar with things around here, the guy was so nice and started explaining things while he is doing it, I felt SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER!!! HEHEHE I’m not stupid, the other dude was trying to freak me out for absolutely no reason.. some people are really something!!

So all in all, my first day was OK :) , I’m gonna have to study hard for the next few days, but that’s fine, I don’t mind at all, as long as I don’t feel dumb :D

I’m so excited, I love my new job, everything is hard at first, bs I promise I’m gonna do my best.

P.S: Battah… thank you VERY MUCH for being there for me today and for supporting me, I don’t know what would’ve happened without you!! I love you :)

    oh wow I didn’t know you got a new job! That’s awesome and you know what there’s always going to be those people that try to make everything look so intimidating and scary, and some people are just kinda impatient and not good at really explaining/teaching. I remember my first job in a lab I felt so confused and I had to keep telling myself “I know I’m not stupid I know I’m not stupid”, this one girl kept trying to quiz me on everything when she was supposed to be teaching me techniques. So 3adi!

  19. asoom Says:

    Maher, it really depends there’s a HUGE range. If you don’t have experience it’s hard to get a decent salary, that’s why alot of peole studying engineering do “internships” sometimes without getting paid just so that they have experience on their resume and can get a decent job by the time they graduate. I have alot of friends that finished engineering and weren’t happy were their options or didn’t get what they want so they ended up going for the masters in hopes of better prospects. Also networking is important, start making connections!

    My dad has his degree in engineering and he started his own business.
