You don’t know the language

If you are ready to speak up, there's a set of unfamiliar jargon. Every company has its acronyms for certain departments or processes and its own terms for people, places and things. "I had to get EVPP and VPR to approve a PAR before sending it to OSP."

It's useful to get a translator. See if a colleague can draw up a cheat sheet for you of commonly used acronyms and phrases. Then, get their permission to ask when a new term arise that you don't know.

When you start a new job, you don't have a group of people you feel comfortable with yet. You may feel like an outsider if you see groups of people talking about shared experiences.

Starting a new job is exciting but can also feel uncomfortable.

You feel awkward because you don't know what to expect and can't forecast what will happen. When we're uncertain about what will happen, we revert to inaction, convincing ourselves that not doing anything is less likely to cause bad outcomes.
