Making a good impression at your new job might not seem easy as you may think, you need to put some things in order for everyone to like you and want you around. There are several reasons to be stressed in a new job which include; learning new routines, learning new systems, striving to impress superiors, learning to cope with new and sometimes difficult personalities.
You obviously cannot control everything in your environment or at the workplace but you do have some roles to play in ensuring you start with best possible conditions and emotional stability.
Here are a few ways and steps you can take to ensure you make good impression at your new workplace.
Dress according to the dress code of your new company. Dress accurate and appropriate. Be conservative in your clothes, neat and clean. Don’t wear uncomfortable shoes, keep your shoes in good condition and well polished. As a lady, keep your nails neat always, hair neatly done and no barbie makeup. As a guy, you should always comb your hair and be well shaved.
Keep To Time
Keeping to time will always make good impression of you, you can always either go slightly earlier or arrive at the accurate time. By arriving to work on time or even early, you are showing your colleagues, as well as your boss that you are prepared to begin the day and you are serious about the job.
Offer To Help
Lend helping hands to your coworker when they are in need of it, this will not only make good impression but will also tell that you care about others. Let’s say that you finish a task early, but notice that someone else is struggling with what they have to do. Offering them some assistance will not only help your coworker finish their task more quickly, but will also show them that you care.
Be organized, stay focused, keep your duty post clean and be flexible. Organize your time well, don’t multitask or procrastinate and use a daily planner if possible. Begin your each day by doing the most important task first. Just getting that done will have accomplished a lot. Leaving projects half-finished will make you feel disorganized. Plus you’ll feel as if you haven’t accomplished anything. Before studying, meditate to relax your mind. Concentrate on one thing that needs to be done. Social media will distract you from what you want to accomplish. So try to turn off the Internet or simply turn off your phone.
Seek for help when in need and ask questions politely when bothered about an issue pertaining to the company. Don’t be afraid to ask any question, instead of assuming things wrongly and making unnecessary mistakes, bringing undue pressure on yourself, don’t hesitate to ask questions on stuff you are not sure about. If you are new you are welcome to ask questions about aspects of your job you do not grasp. Doing this is much better than steamrolling your way and getting yourself worked up trying to solve issues you could easily get help on.
That you have a new job doesn’t mean you should overlook your personal wellbeing, abandon your daily exercises and resorting to unhealthy eating.
