Of late, I’ve been thinking A LOT. About…. what I want to do with the rest of my life. About careers and if I’m going to remain in legal forever. What IS it I’m really meant to do? What do I WANT? I don’t quite know. On Thursday, I was met with a proposition that opens a door to something I never thought would happen to me – I’ll probably address that in my next post.
For now, I shall leave you with a piece I wrote for The Cambelles this month. I call it “50 Things My First Job Taught Me” – I’ll describe it as an amusing take on the stuff I’d learnt from my first job (and perhaps second, too).
You know, the time when you first find out the stuff you are NOT supposed to do, how you ARE to behave, and the things you ought not to say to your colleagues over lunch. Like how you think Lucy is overpaid (oops, someone left her payslip on the photocopier) and how Peter skives on the job….
The working world teaches you so much about the importance of EQ over IQ, and that you REALLY need to watch your words (and back!). So go on, have a read and tell me – what were the most important lessons your first job taught you? :)
