I just started my first fulltime job a few weeks ago and I'm blown away by the support and guidance that my manager is willing to provide me. It feels like I graduated and have entered the next level of schooling. It probably helps that she previously taught design.
Not only did she help me set short and long term goals, but she also helped set me on a personal growth plan and is both happy and willing to teach me the skills I need to improve.
I'm just curious to see how common this is or if I just got extremely lucky.
