10 Things I Learned During My First Year of Work

As promised, I am posting more consistently! This is a post I was already thinking of a week after starting my first job (lol you have to plan ahead haha). It is pretty crazy to think I have been working for over a year now. My mindset has shifted so much this past year in everything, but also because of working/my job. I am thankful to have a job with awesome coworkers and opportunities, and be living in such a cool city. Here are 10 things I learned during my first year of work!

1. Give things time

2. Hold yourself accountable

3. Be positive– don’t let the negative moments or mistakes impact your day

4. Praise others

5. Always be early

6. I love coffee- I have discovered so many coffee shops near my office and my favorite coffee to bring with me to work (shoutout to La Colombe)

7. Smile

8. Consistency is so important

9. Bring others up with you

10. Commuting on the train is not as fun as I thought it was last year 😀

What are some of the main things you have learned throughout your job? Any advice for the rest of my working life? Thank you for reading and being a part of my first year working in Chicago! Many more posts to come 🙂
