On the 10th of January 2022, I arrived for my first day in the office at my new job in Traralgon, having moved all away from Melbourne a few days prior. Based on the interview process and my research into the company, it definitely seemed like a good fit, I was still a little nervous and unsure what to expect.

Things started off well at In2 Project Management from day one. This company was pretty organised in terms of being ready for new hires. I had my schedule before the day began, and when I got to the office, my computer and desk were waiting for me. The work environment is very comfortable and relaxed which means you can take little breaks when you like or go and take a walk around the beautiful town. The positives of my time at In2 Project Management so far include the opportunities to spend time with great people. In between all of socialising, I’ve been doing some actual work, and so far, it has been a very positive experience.

A large part of what I was looking for in this job was to learn, and in the first month, this job has met that criterion. Not only have I enjoyed the work I’ve done in my first month, but I’ve also enjoyed the people I’ve worked with. I really appreciate the opportunity to work closely with and learn from my colleagues, and I particularly appreciate the guidance and mentoring along my journey. Another thing that I’m very happy about is the support I’m receiving from the team to help me with whatever I need to feel comfortable. Asking for help is not easy for me, but I know that when I do ask for help, that support is available, and I’m very grateful for that.

I know I’m still in the early stages of this job, and things will continue to change and evolve during my time here. But for the most part, things have started off well and I’m very happy with my job and the company. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, and I’m excited to see what happens for me over the coming months.
