Definitely!! I’ve been in my field for 8 years and I still have days like that, especially when going to a new company. I’ve been here for only 5 months so far and I’ve definitely had my moments. 

At my very first real job my boss told me once that it’s not making the mistake that matters, it’s how you react to it and learn from it. That has stuck with me ever since. People make mistakes but as long as you do everything in your power to rectify it and learn from it for the future then you’re on the right track 🙂

@eraff32:  And you will shake it off! I’m sure they will forget about it pretty quickly, way before you do

@orchidaloha:  Great advice.

Part of learning and growing in your career path is realizing that the more you know and the more you learn, the stupider you feel.  Learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others.  Observe.  Ask questions.  Ask “why” not just “how” or “what.”

Also remember that they don’t expect you to know everything out of college, and in reality you won’t.
