Being the new kid on the block is one of the most intimidating aspects of starting a new job. Try to gauge the level of familiarity at your new place of employment. Do people treat each other as close friends or keep their work and personal lives separate?
Use change to your advantage. Log your accomplishments as a way to track progress in your new position. However, if the stress associated with a new job is seriously affecting your life, make sure you get appropriate professional help.
