I graduated from uni earlier this year and I’ve landed a job at a bank, starting in a few days. I’d love to learn about any sort of tips or tricks, big or small, that helped you as you transitioned from the uni lifestyle to the full-time work lifestyle.
I’ve heard from some friends that the full-time grind can be quite challenging mentally and physically, at least to start off with, so I’m trying to get as many perspectives as I can to guide me through the transition.
I’ve worked in retail (mostly 1-3 days a week) for a few years and have a bit of internship experience that was unfortunately fully online, so it’s definitely going to be a little daunting to be dressing in business attire on the daily and heading to the city in a building with people much more experienced than me but I’m super excited as well!
I’m eager to read anything that you may have to say, whether it’s about maintaining a healthy sleep schedule, managing a long commute to the city, the dynamics in an office, (legal) ways to reduce tax, things to look out for in my first few days, etc. - literally whatever comes to your mind. Looking forward to reading what you come up with, thanks!
Edit: Any relevant, interesting stories that taught you said tips or tricks are more than welcome, would love to read about people's own experiences
