Reporting to work late on the first day or during the first few weeks can leave the wrong impression.
To be punctual, you can find out about the reporting time and work towards getting to the workplace at least 15 minutes earlier. Take into account factors such as ongoing construction, traffic, and other hiccups that might delay you from getting to work on time.
The first day in a company is all about making good impressions. And an excellent elevator pitch is one way of endearing yourself to your new workmates. An elevator pitch is a 15–30-second speech that tells your colleague who you are, the roles you have held previously, and what you will be doing in the new job.
Your pitch should never be lengthy. Since you are a stranger in the new workplace, an elevator pitch assists in breaking the ice and striking up conversations as you do your work.
Forming good relationships with your coworkers will help you transition to the new role fast.
Learn the names of other employees and professionally integrate into the new community. Confine questions and details about yourself within acceptable boundaries to earn respect at work. Go out of your way to initiate meaningful conversations rather than waiting to be approached.
Being a good listener can help you catch on things about the company and your job quickly.
It is also a good idea to seek clarification by asking various questions. Prepare both general and practical questions concerning the dynamics of your new role.
Happiness and satisfaction are subjective concepts – while for some of us monetary benefits can be equated with job satisfaction, some might strive for recognition of their hard-work and lose motivation on failing to achieve so.
No matter what the standards are, being content with our careers is crucial for maintaining the ‘work-life’ balance.
If you weren’t dealing with your job every day, what would you be doing instead? Any activities you can dream of can be turned into a money-making venture.
If you’re still not sure, then take some classes. Try a few things out before making your choice.
As you step into a new job, reflect on your last job.
