First thoughts from the new guy

19 11 2015


Starting a new job is not easy! Wow what a revelation. The effort that goes into finding a job and the excitement of being the successful candidate is quickly replaced by the realization that you now need to learn the role. This is where I found myself 50 days ago when I began my journey at Opening Doors to Success. New jobs are seldom exactly what we expect them to be. I had thoughts on what my new role at ODS would be like. First impressions of the current staff, clients and culture; ideas of the role and how I would fit into the current team.
I am happy these first impressions of my co-workers were correct. They are genuine people with endless compassion and truly unique personalities. The kind of people you would hope for when needing a helping hand.
My initial understanding of the role as a pre-employment coach was a little less accurate. I think pre-employment teammate would be closer to the reality of my role. These people have tremendous skills and rich histories and would make great additions to the work force. They are focussed on finding, not just any job but the right job for them and I feel privileged to be able to assist them on their journey.
Steinbach is fortunate to have a resource like ODS and I feel fortunate to be a small part of it!
Here’s to the next 50 days
