Imposter Syndrome

In a couple of days I will be starting a new job. I will meet new people and start all over again by learning how to do stuff and this is exciting. However I keep having this nagging feeling that I believe every tech-worker feels from time to time: Imposter Syndrome.

You feel like you’re an imposter, because you’re feeling totally unqualified for the job. Usually this is just a feeling you get, but you’re actually pretty competent for the job and the things you’re going to do. I usually go through a couple of steps when I start a new job: Nervousness, imposter syndrome and then accepting that I’m not so awesome at all stuff, but there are many things that I know.

I am pretty sure that I’ll do just fine. Damn you, imposter syndrome! You’re simply the worst!
