It’s interesting how the “first day” at a new job brings back memories of the “first day of school” used to. There’s a combination of excitement and uncertainty.
I just started a new chapter in my professional career yesterday, moving from 25+ years of working for companies directly supporting various Federal Government agencies (from NASA to the US Army) to a Project Management role working for a small (but looks to be growing!) commercial software development firm.
There will be some getting-up-to-speed hurdles, but I don’t see anything that will keep me from being ultimately successful in this role and (hopefully) growing it into something long-term and rewarding.
