"What you think you will do" and "What you actually do" is very different. This is true for most of the jobs. While you are studying or preparing yourself for a job, you have some things in mind and you think you will be working according to that but most of the times you will have to do something different or at least not as much as you expected. So avoid getting de-motivated due to this. You have to learn about the work culture. For someone who has just completed college, the work environment will be different. So give yourself some time and learn this culture

First few years are very crucial to shape your future. The initiates you take, the work you do, your performance every tiny thing will shape the next job you get, the salary you get, the job role you get.

IT market trends are changing really fast. Companies are not looking for employees with knowledge instead they look for employees that can adapt to new technology and the new market quickly.

Learn and try to grasp as much as you can from your first job. Be very curious and ask a lot of doubts. Question everything and try to find answers. Go ahead and reach out for people in different domains and learn from them as well.
