When I started working full-time last September, all I had in my mind is that I “wasn’t an intern anymore”, which I thought would mean I could take any mental pressures out of my role; I felt that, essentially, it would be a lot easier than my internship. Little did I know there would be a ton of other different (and unexpected) hurdles waiting for me in the office. I think, for me, adjusting to working full-time in the corporate world wasn’t easy (especially working in such a high-intensity job), but along the way I’ve learned a lot and I actually developed a lot as well, and this is all directly due to my job. With exams soon out of a way – I know many of you will soon be going into your own full-time grad jobs. So, don’t be like me and come with assumptions already made – keep your mind open and if anything, be ready to walk away from the first few months as a different person. To help you out and give you a heads up – I’ve listed the five things I think you’ll need to adjust to when you start working full time.
