A typical day at work is usually overflowing with diverse tasks that you will perform for the benefit of your clients (no, you won't have time for lunch and no, you won't even have time for bathroom breaks). These tasks are of urgent nature and of utmost importance for your clients; however, seldom, if ever, you will have a clue as to what you are doing or even if you are doing the right thing for your clients. There is very little guidance and you will basically be thrown into an overwhelming caseload with no idea of how to begin helping the people that will need, and ask, so much of you. The best source of peace of mind and information will be your coworkers who, although at times catty and 'clicky', are in the front lines with you and will offer their help in any way they can, the collaborating cohort of people in the office will often share information of resources and how to's when it comes to navigating the system. Don't bother with management, they are basically there to point out how you can be doing so much more and to give you grief about the EXTENSIVE amount of paperwork that more often than not, you will be taking home to finish on time. If there is ANYTHING else you can do instead of this, do it.
not the job you think it is
