HR Career Advice
Congratulations on your new job!
No matter where you start your new job, the first day at the new office can always be a nerve-wracking experience. But don’t worry. You are not the only one to feel this way. Every beginning is a challenge that leads to amazing opportunities. So, let’s make your first day as easy as possible with these 5 tips.
This might sound too easy, but there is a reason why the employer chose you for the role: you have already impressed them in the job interview. Be proud of yourself. And keep this in mind when you make your first steps into the office.
Are you invited to a party the night before your first day? Better skip it this time and go to bed early. Lay out your clothes, pack your bag for the next day and get a good night’s rest.
Simply because a smile is something that suits everyone. As well as your smile, remember that you should dress according to company policies. If you don’t know about the dress code yet, you should keep it conservative until you find out what is appropriate to wear.
Always ask questions. It will show your interest in the company and your motivation about your new career.
Organise your lunch the day before. This is important, especially if you don’t know about the lunch arrangements in your new company yet. An empty stomach can make you feel tired and weak. Keep something quick and handy in your bag, like a fruit bar, an apple or nuts. Take a bottle of water with you.
And don’t forget: This is an experience and after a few months you will look back and laugh about your nervousness as the point where you feel completely comfortable at your company will come.
