  • Typically, no. Not anymore. But then I've been doing this for too long to get nervous anymore.

  • No. Honestly I've only ever had to start 2 new jobs where I didn't already know everyone there and it was always a fun experience. I'm an extremely confident person and always knew I was the best person for the job, so I had no reason to be nervous.

  • never was really, I went to work not to be liked. But, I don't have that problem anymore. I work from home for myself, just not by myself! :D

  • Am I the right person for this job? Is this the right position for me? My last job was excellent (before the budget cuts). The job before was very stressfull (budget cuts again). I normally take a look around to see how stressed the current employees are, if the job is an emergency job for me. A lot of the time, emergency jobs tend to exploit in my opinion. I want to make sure that today's solution won't be tomorrow's nightmare.

  • Sure, I'm always nervous. But I remind myself that I was a newbie at every other job I've taken and it didn't take long to fit in. Good luck, you'll be fine!
