This past week I got hired on to a new job which is full time and pays more than my old job did which was part time.My first day will be the 26th at my new job. My last day at my old job was this last Friday. But anyways here are just a few things I have learned in this transition period.
1. Your old employer might want you to leave earlier than your two weeks notice
This happened to me. I gave my two weeks notice the day I signed my hiring papers for my new job. I gave it to them in writing stating I wanted my last day to be the 23rd. However I went back on my next scheduled shift to learn I was not scheduled any hours the next week. So I turned in my badge and finished that day of work. It was not a firing since I put in a notice.
2. Don't brag to your coworkers about your new opportunity
They probably will not want to hear it. At the end of the day they probably could care less who comes or goes due to the fact it happens often. Trust me I have seen 30 or so workers come and go since December 2015. Quite a few with injuries, some never got more than 4 hours a week, Some left because they did not feel like part of the group. So either way your coworkers are going to probably feel unfazed.
3. Research as much about your new position and the products and services as possible
I am going to be a call center sales and customer service rep for a major US Company (Thats all I can say) so I am researching as much about the producs and services as possible before my trainng classes begin. Knowledge is power, so the more you know the more sucessful you can be with your clientel.
So as one door has closed, another one has opened. I feel like I am ready to give it my all and go for the stars. I feel like I did well at my old job, so lets see if I can bring any experience and knowledge to my new one!
