I just finished my onboarding/training for my first job out of college (22), and I start my first real day of work on a BizOps team Monday. I imagine I’ll be doing some onboarding for that too, but any advice for someone just starting out in an analyst role? I want to make a good impression and learn a lot.

Ask a lot of questions, don't say yes to everything

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Don't be afraid to take responsibility and rectify problems. Remember that mistakes happen and that burying them usually makes them worse. Have patience. But, mostly, try to get some sleep first so you'll be ready to face it all. If you're anything like me, you'll be up with insomnia the night before. I never was great with first days.

Congrats! I agree with previous replies. As soon as you stop asking questions because someone else responds you in a wrong way and/or you feel bad, you stop growing and the job becomes overwhelming. Good luck! :)

Get to know your teammates for insight and support, and pick up your own independence as best as you're able as you continue to grow. But it's really valuable not to think of yourself as an island.

Hey Ladies - my fiancé is trying to move to Boston or New York in the next few months, but his field is pretty niche in finance (long only investing). He works at a mutual fund in Chicago, and has been putting feelers out. We both feel that more postings will open up in January, but if anyone has some insight on recent job openings that might be a good fit, I’d love to know so I can point him that way. A chance to connect him with someone would also be extremely helpful! Long distance is hard.

I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?
