after two interviews i got my first job.the company is in Shanghai,i thought maybe i will have enough time to do something else,like visiting my parents or being on mylot,but no,i am even busier than before.i am afraid that if i could do my job well,and i need to learn more things before going to that company.why i am worried about so many things? when i first passed the interview,i felt very excited, this job cost me a whole month,waiting and hoping,and now,i am thinking,my future,what it will be? several months later i will no longer be a student,and will never have that chance to be in campus,maybe i should cherish every moment here.

You may not be at the campus a few months hence , but one doesn't cease being a student.As you will keep learning newer things to enhance your career ,you'd still be a student at your workplace :-) Okay,enough sermoning and sorry about that,lol. With social networking sites rampant and internet at hand ,I daresay you won't miss your friends as much or at least hope you don't. Wish you the best for your future.

Congratulations to you Yanstill! I'm very happy for you, and I know you'll have great success in your new job! Working does take up more time than you expect when you're a student - often travelling to work takes quite a while - but it makes you appreciate the time you have away from work even more! And living on the money you've earned makes everything you buy and eat and pay for seem so much more satisfying. I wish you the best of luck (although I'm sure you won't need it), and look forward to hearing more of your news when you have time to post a discussion next time. Since I started working for Manchester Council, I don't really have time to do MyLot (like you) regularly, but I'll try to respond to your discussions whenever I can! Take care, and keep up the good work! Your family must be very proud of you, and you should be proud of your achievements too :-) Well done!

Congratulation, yanstill. I just came back from vacation and really glad to learn that you finally have got a new job in Shanghai. Anyhow Shanghai is not too far from your hometown, Nanjing, I suppose. It just takes you few hours for the journey by modern speedy vehicles. Hi my friend, it is quite natural for us to worry about the unknown, especially those of major importance to our future. Sometimes we worry we couldn’t meet the requirement of the employing company and start worrying. Try to make yourself occupied and not to imagine too much unnecessarily. Undesirable imagination could always make thing worse. Few people could really forget their campus life. It is nice that you enjoy it very much. Anyhow you will find to enjoy more freedom later when you have left the campus where a student has to follow lots of regulations. Another advantage is financial independence, of course lol I did experience the sadness of leaving the school, the classmates and the beloved teachers. Their intimacies made school life so memorable. Have a nice day and with best wishes.

congrats' on your first job now you are stepping into a new chapter in life. You don't have to worry much, time will make things easier and getting a job is like you are now independent and now you will know the values of money. student life you will miss and those were the hard times in life even though we enjoyed a lot, now you got a job which will make life easier. So, may you have a good future.

I can say that you're not alone in the world feeling restless and anxious being you're first time in the corporate world. A lot of people, including me, feels the very same thing upon entering a different phase in life. After graduating from college, you're normally idealistic and think you could make a difference in life. It could be or could not be true. It will largely depend on your working attitude and the atmosphere in your office. Before you officially begin your job, bear in mind the real valuable or important things to you. And don't forget to be your best self. Congratulations and best of luck.

Thats awesome! It is always great to enter a new time in your life. Things are always exciting and scarey when a big change comes up. I actually quit my job that I've had for 7 years a few days ago. That is also very scarey and exciting. It is a new chapter in my life and I don't know what to do. Congratulations and best of life!
