    Concerns of a new employee

    Hello all,

    I recently graduated from college with a BS in Computer Science. Before that I did 7 years in the AF as a cop and 2 tours in Iraq. The last years in school I worked as a paid intern and after that I had a part-time job where I wrote 2 web application for some companies. I just got hired in this company where I was led to believe that I was going to be doing what I know PHP,Javascript,JQuery, MySQL. As far as I was told the only thing I had to learn to work with was with GIS stuff. Now for the past three days they have dumped me in this team working with Perl and instead of asking me to created something(which id prefer in order to learn) in perl, Im being asked to modify existing code. I'm concern that Ill get fired for not being able to keep up with the rest of the team. I have move my family a few hundred miles and I cant afford to loose my job. Am I being too paranoid?

    Paranoid-> Maybe

    Should probably keep after it to keep the paychecks coming in-> YES

    Talking about your concerns with the boss would also be a good idea
