It ain’t so easy going from spending your days in class and nights partying (okay, studying sometimes), to having a full-time job. Sure, you had responsibilities in college, like turning in assignments on time and budgeting your spending money. But you’re obligations as an employee are different from when you were a student. Let me tell you, it’s definitely an adjustment going from doing work for you and doing work that affects a team of people.

If you’re a recent grad who hasn’t fully adjusted to life post-college, you’re not along. I’m still getting used to the real world and having a 9-5 gig. I’ve adjusted somewhat, and I have to say that it’s because I’ve found ways to get motivated for work. That whole “working for the weekend” mentality doesn’t really make sense to me. You shouldn’t dread waking up and heading to your office 5 days a week. That just isn’t a way to live, am I right?!

Really, being part of the workforce isn’t THAT bad. In fact, I actually think it’s better than school…no studying and homework at night anymore! That’s at least one reason to get excited about having a job. Click the slideshow to see 11 ways to get excited for work as an office newbie.
