So I start the new gig two weeks on Monday.
I'm that odd stage of the 'idea' disappearing and reality quietly creeping in.
It's that point when you start to think about the stuff you're going to miss, there's always something.
Mostly, it comes down to predictability. The culture you're used to, people you have a relationship with- the friends, the less than friends- and stuff.
While the reality of the new becomes consideration of the unknown. Because you never really know what a place will be like before you start.
The people of course.
There's also the usual new laptops, phones, payrolls etc.
It's also about the tea making culture - kettle or urn?
And, since I'll be riding within my commute, what's the shower like?
It's amazing all the things you really don't know before you start a new place.
Sounds like something recruitment folks could think about to add value and be a bit different.
