How long does it take to adjust to a new job? I switched over to industry and I have no background in this specific business. Struggling 🤦🏻‍♀️

Give yourself at least 6 months or at least as much time as it takes to do one full cycle of your job responsibilities.

I would agree with the previous poster - give yourself at least 6 months. But, to be honest, depending on the complexity of industry you may need to be ready for longer. I did this move about 10 years ago and I probably didn’t feel confident to follow along and lead industry dialogues well into a year. Not knowing what industry you just jumped into, my experience was when jumping into a long-standing, institutional industry those already in it were actually quite patient with me and extremely willing to educate me along the way. I know what it is like to want to come to a new company and bring immediate, exponential value. Harness your inner patience and enjoy the journey of learning something new every day ☺️

I have Spanish speaking clients while my team is English speaking. We want to have real-time English subtitles of the translation during meeting and are trying find a meeting technology (like Teams, Webex, etc) with the feature built-in and/or add-on tech that we can use. Do any of you have recommendations or experience with this? Zoom isn’t an option and we have a human translator who summarizes so we miss the detail.
