Everyone works hard to ensure they get all the ideas they learn in school in the hope that these ideas will help them once they get a job. Regardless of how much time one spends in school, there are certain aspects of life which no one will ever teach you and they are left for one to teach themselves. Getting used to a new and different way of doing things which was not covered during your days in school can be a huge shock to many for it is a new learning process you will have to start at a different level under unique circumstances. Though the learning process is continuous, the variance between what you learn in school and what you apply in job context is big. The article below endeavors to bring about such challenges one may face once they get their first job which does not relate with what is learned in school.
While in school everything is quite timed and that brings some form of rhythm in what one does throughout their years in school making it easy for anyone to adaptAt the workplace you are responsible to manage your own activities since there are no more routines such as going to the dining hall which may get one by surprise especially if you have not been good at time management even during your time in school. When you are expected to come up with your own working schedule as a new employee, it can seem a tall order.
Meeting your boss and organization goals can mean a lot especially on your ability to achieve the expected objectives set for the job. There is no class work which will teach about specific organizations culture and it will be upon you to identify and accommodate the culture which is practiced in the organization you get job at. It may take one a considerable time before being fully aware of how a lot of things work within an organization and this may lower their morale and productivity. These challenges related to what one is expected to do as part of their duty in an organization can only be remedied by patience and trying hard to learn and note everything to ensure you can memorize in a later date.
Finally, work colleagues are much different from classmates because of the level of professionalism and the social structures within an organization. In school no one will teach how to interact with others once employed though you can be aware that there exist various channels of communication in a formal organization. Choices related to which events one should attend or participate in are limited because everything is done through teamwork. Learning to get along well with others at both personal and formal level will be a big balance which you will be expected to hit for smooth time while in your current job.
