I was not nervous but felt as if everybody was looking on me and got so conscious. Indeed most of the staff were really looking at me and how I will perform. I managed to get over these scrutinizers though. Now, I am doing very, very good!

Anything new can be very nervous. I remember starting out as a teacher and working until wee hours of the morning getting things ready. I was so nervous I wanted to throw up all over the place. Now, each year is a like a brand new day at the job. New kids, new situations, new expectation and new things from the state to cover. Atleast you got your first day under your belt you can only get better and things will get easier. I have to face another 'first day' in just a matter of a month or two!

Well i was not nervous but very curious about what i would be assigned on my first day and what i would have to do. I was not pressured during the first day. I was introduced to my team members and got training the first day onwards .

My first day in office didn't begin until the gateman was convinced that I was an employee. Our organisation is a kind of security conscious and they always keep a gateman who never allows anyone in without an ID. I didnt have one, and he stopped me. I tried to convince him that I was a new recruit and that he can ask this person or that person. But he didn't budge. We even exchanged a few words. I had to sit for two hours at reception before someone informed the people who were expecting me that I was stuck there. Afterwards though I made friends with the gateman.
