Job hunting nowadays is a difficult task, especially in the Philippines where the unemployment rate is at 6.1% as of April this year.

However, doesn't it feel amazing when you finally land one? If you just got the offer you were dreaming of, then congratulations!

Pretty exciting but also terrifying at the same time. Whether this is your first or 10th job, don't we all experience jitters on our first day? Just like when classes open, you don't know what to expect from your professors and classmates. Will you fit in? Will the teacher know what he or she is going to talk about?

3) Not all is well

Just because your boss is tight-lipped doesn't mean that you're doing nothing wrong. Sitting around, waiting for your evaluation is the worst way to know your standing in the company. Remember that apart from your job description, it is also your responsibility to be curious of your own performance. And no one knows this better than your own boss. Plus, asking your superior on your areas of improvement will aid you in finishing work faster. Most of the time, following your boss' advice is fail-proof.

Change is scary but it's for the best. Sticking to what you're good at isn't enough. Better yourself and your skill set as time passes by.
