New Job Anxiety -
Being the new person in an office can cause pressures and worries that can lead to having a Panic attack. Fear of losing a job and not being able to live up to those expectations required by the new position can lead the new person to failure. It is so hard to be a new employee and most of the time we expect more from ourselves then our employer does. Every new employee is allowed to be slow at first and has at least a 30 to 90 day time before they are brought in and reviewed. If your trying your hardest then don't worry about it, do the best you can do and if it doesn't work out it just was not your cup of tea. There will be many opportunities and jobs available throughout your whole life so relax, chances are your doing as expected and nobody is putting this pressure on you but yourself.
I know when I first started working I felt like I knew nothing and as I looked around I saw so many productive people and it made me feel like I was stupid. The first several months I feared I wouldn't make the grade and feared losing my job. What you have to understand is when your new the company, or at least most companies know that there is a learning curve. You have to understand that it's ok not to know your job and duties right off. With time and if you work hard your life at work will become easier and before you know it you won't feel like the new guy.
We all feel this way, it's natural to compare yourself to other employees but you must compare apples to apples. Stop looking at employees that have been working there longer then you and just try and focus on learning and doing the best that you can do. The worst thing that can happen is you find another job if your not qualified enough. The biggest thing to consider is your overall happiness so always keep this in mind. Your relief, your cure, is changing the way you look at things and not being so harsh on yourself. Give yourself the alloted amount of time employers give you to start fitting into your new work role and duties.
