So, here are few tips which will help you to make a great impression on your first day.
Have a Positive Attitude
Nothing works better than having a positive attitude. If someone giving you a task always say yes and never say no. And always leave non-work problems at home.
Dress Professionally/Blend in With Co-Workers
You should never underestimate the importance of dressing professionally in your new job. After awhile, you will realize that these things are not necessary but initially, your looks and dress are your representation to them.
You are now part of a work team, and teams work together to solve problems and get the job done. Show loyalty to your co-workers and focus more initially at least and always give your 100% .
Learn Co-Workers’ Names Quickly
No one expects you to have everyone’s name but if you are bad with names you need to be learn the names of every member of your team as soon as possible. And if you are in a situation in which you forget a person’s name, the best solution is simply to apologize and ask the person’s name again.
Ask Questions/Ask for Help
No one expects you to solve all the organization’s problems on your first days on the job nor that you know everything — so, relax a bit, and always ask questions or ask for help when you need it. Remember that it’s better to ask before you’ve completed the task the wrong way and wasted all that time. Be open-minded, Be co-operative, Listen, Ask questions.
Consider taking notes on all the various systems and rules of the organization.
