Do you remember how it was when you woke up early in the morning to go to office? How desperately you was looking for clothes, but you did not found them. If you would remember how things was, to face the first day of work in a new post. Difficult? Very!
Perhaps the accommodation with your new colleagues and office tasks will find it difficult, but the hardest one is to enjoy a new schedule, especially if you have been unemployed a long time.
That is why it would be good to prepare in advance to successfully handle all your small problems that can ruin a perfect day.
Before the first day of work:
1. Learn to sleep
Working hours are going to change dramatically once with the new job. It would be nice to wake up at 7 o’clock every day, before starting the job.
You avoid the stupor from the first day work when alarm ring two hours earlier than you wake up every day.
2. Study the company
The more you know about your job, the more will be easier to get a part of the team.
During the first day of work:
3. Note everything
I know you have an excellent memory, but the amount of information received in the first day is much higher than you succeed. So it would be good to note all you learn to remember then.
4. Listen and ask
Nobody likes a “know-all person”, so do not need to have an attitude of superiority to those around you. Try to listen and ask questions even if you know some answers already.
5. Be ready for … nothing
It might be a days so easy that even you will not understand what is happening. Some organizations are not as fast and do not offer support for newcomers. So you have to do your job regardless of how you will be treated in that day.
Whatever is going to be, the first day of work is always interesting!
