Day One in Your New Job—a Monster guide.
新工作的第一天－－一份 Monster 指南。
It takes a lot of effort to secure a new job, so make the most of it and enjoy your new working environment. On day one, dressing your best will make you feel good, and your confidence will infect those around you. Leave yourself plenty of time to get to work and eat a proper breakfast so you're not looking for an opportunity to dive out and grab something mid-morning.
Remember the qualities that got you the job in the first place. Smile, be positive, make eye contact, greet new colleagues with a firm handshake. It's okay to be a little nervous and on your guard at first. You'll have plenty of time to relax into your new role in the weeks to come. Whatever you're asked to do, make sure you give it 100 percent effort. Being courteous should be a basic attribute anyway, but make sure you don't accidentally rub anyone up the wrong way on your first day. Everyone you encounter, from the receptionist right up to the big boss, should receive the same impression of you—polite and respectful.
Make it your business to introduce yourself, especially if your new manager doesn't introduce you first. Feel free to ask advice. Don't stand there shuffling your feet if you don't know where to go or what to do. Even if you're already experienced in your role, don't assume you can simply do what you did before in the same way. While there are probably plenty of skills you can transfer, every workplace has its own way of operating.
Join in any coffee breaks or anything that gives you a chance to get to know your new colleagues on a more personal level. They will be able to help you to understand the unwritten rules of the workplace, from answering personal mobile phone calls to nipping outside for a cigarette. Never talk your last job or company down, and be discreet in what you say about former employers.
Be the one who volunteers for something, like changing the bottle on the water cooler, or doing a coffee run. Be the last to lunch in the early days, the first back, and one of the last out of the door at night. Show your new colleagues that you're committed and mean business, but also looking to integrate yourself as one of the team.
