I seem to have a problem fitting into the social norm. Maybe I’m secretly retarded or something. No, wait, I think it might have something to do with my approach.
Really it just amazes me how much you really have to learn about a company sometimes. I find it rather intriguing really. Personally I don’t start liking a job until I get to know people well enough to not have to go to lunch alone. That is no fun.
This isn’t really a story, but the book does have some good guidelines and pointers that less experienced people such as myself may find useful. Plus it walks you through it starting with week 1. I thought it’d be helpful if I ever felt the need to attempt to work in a hoity toity office atmosphere again.
