First day at work

Without any doubt, one of the most important days in a career is day one. Generally, on this day you get familiar with your work atmosphere, understand your daily routine and job schedule and meet your colleagues. The first positive impression is what you need to make in the first day at work.

To strike a good impression, self-confidence is arguably the most essential key. To perform your self-confidence, you have to wear appropriate clothes, act friendly, show yourself curious about the various parts of the job, communicate with others during lunch break, be aware of your body language, and say goodbye at the end of the workday.

The first day at work is more about listening and observing, ask questions when you have to and try to understand well the rules, manners and procedures you should know. Convince your coworkers and supervisors you see your responsibilities as the most important thing in the world.

From the begging till the end of the work hour, smile and perform a happy face. Say hello to others, shake their hands and introduce yourself. Say how glad you are and how much pleasure it is that you are meeting them. Do not be shy and do not do an unusual act in day one. Remind yourself of this truism: When in Rome, do as Romans do.
