  • Can You Afford a Break?

       The first question to ask yourself when considering your new job's start date is how long you can afford to be out of a job.

 

  • Detox. If possible, try and get a week off between leaving your current gig and starting the new one to mentally leave your job behind and let you start nice and fresh, eager to learn new things and meet new people. You shouldn't be world-weary on your first day at a new job.

 

  • Research your new company. You may want to take a day or so to get your thoughts in order and ring them with questions or thoughts so you can hit the ground running when you arrive on your first day. Also before joining find out who's there, what they've done, how they've grown, what their reputation is like across their industry.

 

  • First and consistent impressions are paramount. Keep in mind there is really no "first day" that is paperwork day, it is really your "first week".  So be punctual  and show initiative and enthusiasm .

 

  • Dress for success. A seasoned hiring manager will happily keep a position open until a candidate with a more professional demeanor comes along.

 

  • Names. Make a conscious effort to remember people’s names, for obvious reasons. The first impression you make on your co-workers will be difficult to change, so provide them an image of a friendly, engaging, helpful, and dedicated compatriot.

 

  • Politics are always close at hand. Try not to be drawn on "hints" your new coworkers give you or other politics. You will not initially know who you can trust!

 

  • Learn the ropes before you decide to reinvent the wheel. Pay attention to the office rules. Keep your phone: silence, if possible. Present an image of focus and dedication.  You also do not want others to think that you are immediately being critical of what they have been doing.

 

  • HELP! The first impression you make on your co-workers will be difficult to change, so provide them an image of a friendly, engaging, helpful, and dedicated compatriot.

 

  • Socialise.  Introduce yourself but in organic, sensible manner. Accept invitations to lunch, drinks after work, or other such get-togethers if at all possible. Volunteer to help with tasks, or even take one on yourself. However, don’t get in to drinking competition that could end up being an embarrassment to you!

 

  • Don’t make excuses.  Through preparation and focused effort, do all you can to make your initial tasks be successful tasks. No one like excuses even when they are somewhat understandable, so making a “no excuses” first impression will pay dividends for you

 

  • Through preparation and focused effort, do all you can to make your initial tasks be successful tasks. •Do the job to the best of your abilities, and if you need guidance or help, ask for it.

 

  • Enjoy yourself as with change there comes opportunity. “Find a job you love and you’ll never work another day in your life!"
