In our field, because of ever-changing technologies, we can become overwhelmed. Just remember that this will happen to all of us, especially those new to the Information Technology field. You will eventually graduate but many of us feel like imposters in our field. We feel, as though we do not know what we are doing and sooner or later our peers or employer will find out we are a fraud. This is called imposter syndrome.
I must admit I have battled this quite often. I have read several great articles on the subject like “Do You Suffer From Impostor Syndrome?” that has helped me recognize and deal with this feeling. Another article that is extremely helpful for budding developers and designers is called “Don’t Worry. We All Feel Overwhelmed. Check them out!
Has anyone else felt like this; overwhelmed, in a job and felt that you may have bit off more than you can chew? I am curious to have a discussion on this because “more than 70 percent of the population has experienced this feeling at one time or another.”
