That first day of work can always be intimidating. You show up 15 minutes early, despite the fact your boss won’t show up for another 20 minutes, prepped and ready to start your new career. You have no idea where the bathroom is, and your too afraid to ask, so you avoid all forms of liquid until you find it. You can’t figure out the copier, you’ve already locked your account and can’t find IT to help, and you key to the parking garage wasn’t set up, so you have wait to follow someone out.
Well I’m here to tell you that it does need to be so bad! We expect HR to prepare everything for us, and although they want to provide your everything to be success in your new job, they may miss a couple things with the heavy load they carry.
So, here’s a quick check list of three things your need to learn on your first day of work!
1. Know the basics! Parking, entrance, washroom, lunchroom, and exit!
2. What interests my boss fascinates me!
Dress for success
And the you have it! Know these basics by the time you leave at 5 pm on your first day, and you will have a strong foundation for the rest of your time with that organizations. You can arrive with confidence, use the washroom in peace, enjoy your lunch, be production and look the part all in that short 8-hour day!
