I’ve never had a performance review in my life. Between organisations not having any structure/process around that kind of thing, or the timing of my changing jobs, it just never happened.
But that changed this week! And I survived and it went fabulously. Whether it will result in more money remains to be seen (we’re publicly funded and knowing how much of a raise my manager got last year I don’t have huge expectations).
I’d been running on autopilot for a while and this was a good jolt to reinvigorate me. Now I’m looking into courses on Coursera and Udemy related to UX and digital (and this weekend many courses on Udemy are only $15!)

Thanks so much on the Udemy tip! I’ve only ever followed MOOCs on Coursera (a couple which have been amazing). I ended up purchasing two on financial investments and one on how to start a YouTube channel. Ultimately, I’m exploring whether sharing teaching vlogs could gain me some side hustle in the future.
Hope you’re having a great start to the weekend.
It’s nice to have performance review from time to time. Good luck!
