My first 2 weeks as a Betssonite

My first 2 weeks as a Betssonite

Starting at a new company is always a bit nerve-racking, but hopefully, you are also full of energy and excitement. It’s fully normal to be nervous, there will be a lot of information to process and a lot of new faces and names to learn. Casper shares his thought and experience from his first 2 weeks.

Casper is a new Betssonite at the Stockholm Office, working as a Product Requirement Analyst which means that he converts legal requirements from  Government organisations and initiatives, and converts them into system functions.

He joined Betsson Group roughly two weeks ago! He himself, and certainly many other people, hardly remember his first weeks. This is guaranteed a normal thing, the first few days can really take a toll on both body and mind.

“I recommend to keep a little notebook with you at all times in order to write down information, but foremost for jotting down literally all questions that pop into your head. Whether it’s about a system, how a certain routine works or who does what. It really helps to structure what you don’t know/unknowing. You can revisit those questions at a later stage to try to answer them yourself or ask someone who knows.”

The first impression is often the one that lasts the longest, Casper was struck by all the helpful and ambitious people working at the office.  “I really like that I was given several opportunities to meet and greet everyone, during Thursdays Fika (Swedish way of grabbing a social coffee break), the office after works on Fridays and some spontaneous Fifa matches during lunch breaks really made it easier to connect to other people,” Casper says.

It was not only fun and games. Casper also took part in an onboarding introduction with fellow new starters. This included an office tour and a presentation about the Betsson Group values, benefits and useful tips for when starting a Betsson.

About Casper

Casper, who born and raised in Stockholm studied Computer and system sciences at  Stockholms University. He has 7 years of experience in the Telecom and Retail sector, and before Betsson Group he worked as a Business Analyst. His best tip for someone who just started a new job is to remember that it’s ok to not know everything after two weeks. Just focus on one day at a time and you’ll gain knowledge over time. Spend time mingling and getting to know your new co-workers and make sure to talk about more than just work
