In Handy Tips, we find ways to improve your life and make it easier and explain why these tips work. Today, we will tell you how to get through the first days of a new job.
Tip: During your first days at a new job, come to work a little earlier than the appointed time, and leave a little later.
How does it work?
The first days at a new job are always stressful. New office, new colleagues, new responsibilities, new everything. It takes time to get used to all of it. Reasonable employers understand this and allow newcomers indulgences in the form of an adaptation week.
At the same time, people usually tend to form an opinion about another person by the first impression, and it is rather difficult to change it later. Do not be afraid to ask questions, remember the names of your colleagues rights away, and smile – all this is important, and it works for you.
But the easiest way to leave a good impression is punctuality. Nowadays, many employers do not consider being late to work a problem. However, if you arrive on time or a little earlier at first, you will create the impression of a responsible person, and this is the most important thing.
To not to miss the mark on the first working day, calculate in advance the travel time from home to the office and add in 20% of the time for unforeseen circumstances. Also, take care of your health: get a good night's sleep and do everything so as not to catch a cold in the first days. If you get through the first days and earn a good reputation, then you can afford to indulge. The main thing to remember is that although the first impression determines a lot, it becomes less and less important over time, so you should not relax too much.
And remember: People will take you as seriously as you take yourself and your job.
