Good Jobs #52: Being dangerous takes time

Boise-area and remote tech jobs at Reynolds and Myers, Fitted, Intuit, Trust & Will, Square, Vacasa, Drake Cooper, Stoltz, Healthwise, Redfin, and more

I’m a few weeks into a new job.

In an industry I have never worked in.

The buzzwords. The competitors. The A.C.R.O.N.Y.M.S.

It’s mind melting.

It’s hard.

But this is to be expected.

A boss from a couple jobs ago told me on my first day: “Be a sponge, go to every meeting, read every document, and meet every person. In about 3 months it will all click and you’ll be dangerous.”1

The 3 month thing has proven true every time.

I just wish he told me I would feel like a big dumb idiot every day until then.

I didn’t write down the direct quote. I was too busy being nervous. It was my first day.
