First days have always been sacred to me.
K-12 it was the first days of school. The first day meant getting new school supplies, which I got to organize for myself and my brother since this was my favorite task of the year. Math was always red, history was orange, and science was green.
The first day of work is filled with anxiety and iced coffee, accompanied by pure excitement. It takes me back to my elementary school days. Who will I sit with during lunch? Will they like me? Will I like them? Part of the first day of work for me includes doing a little research on the company and the people in the company. I am writing this post from a coffee shop next door to my office since I want to be perfectly on time for my first day.
Here are my 5 first day of work tips:
- Do a little research before you start(nothing creepy, just be knowledgable)
- Always be on time
- Get a good night’s sleep the night before
- Start your routine from day one. If you want to go to the gym before work, start this the first day and it will become a habit
Don’t be afraid to ask questionsAsk a lot of questions
