You go in the first day on the new job! Whether it is the first job you have, or you have worked so far, a little nervousness is acceptable.

HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Nervousness is acceptable and natural.
  2. Watch your words and behave.
  3. Learn the boundaries before crossing them.

Whether it is the first job you have, or you have worked so far, a little nervousness is acceptable, but make sure first impression is the last impression.

It is about meeting with new colleagues and new environment in which you will spend the days to come. In many organizations, HR give you some advice about how you should behave on the first day of work. However, you must prepare yourself for the worst and hope for the best!

Although there is no miracle recipe integration in the new job, the secret is to be more dynamic and be bold. The new will not appreciate if you sit motionless in front of the computer and will remove words from you with pliers.

He speaks out and ask questions. He will be more interested in seeing a candidate, who is much faster, about learning things.

Take my words, try not to throw impression that he have hired a timid candidate not good at anything.

On a positive note, you must not miss that first chance of proving your worth. You must tell them that you want to integrate as quickly as you can and you want to be part of the team.

Trust me this first “good look” in the eyes of the boss and colleagues can help you are declaring yourself as a candidate available for getting involved in the most challenging projects.

But, be very careful about your overtime policies. If you are not comfortable doing that, you better make it clear at the time of your appointment.

The with new colleagues is very important so you can integrate more quickly to the new job and to work. This way you will be building a good atmosphere for yourself.

So, do not hesitate to go to other colleagues and introduce yourself from day one. Meal breaks is a good time of day to discuss new colleagues about common passions.

However, relationship with colleagues must remain a simple relationship of work and so, at least at first, until you realize your and their limitations.

The company could be a ruthless universe, so be careful to rival groups formed inside the team. Being new employee, you can be easily manipulated.

Be careful and try to keep a certain distance, where you are not conflicted with anyone not related to you.

On the first day of work, you can receive tasks that you have no idea about. Regardless of your formal training, if you have any, the secret is to watch how others do. So, sit around someone who is good in doing the same (if allowed), observe him closely and do what he does. You must learn to communicate with others in a very short time and the best way to do this is to listen to them.

Initiative proves! When you are in a new situation you tend to stay away, but the first day is not advisable to do so. The secret is to be helpful without being overbearing. When you do not yourself, you tend to hide yourself from the things and this increase your aggression. So be active, not aggressive!

Either way, trying to seem as sure of yourself as you can. From the first day prove yourself. Leave no chance of integrating with the new team. You know that first impressions count!
