Welcome to Your New Job
Congratulations on landing a brand new job. Once the celebration dies down, it’s only natural for nervous excitement to kick in. Psychologists rank starting a new job as one of the 10 most stressful events we go through in our lives. But, don’t let that get you down. Take your energy and focus it on something positive—succeeding at your new gig.
In the next 30 days you can expect to:
- Learn the way of the land.
- Meet your co-workers.
- Establish a communication system with your boss.
- Start on your way to a successful career.
The first thing you should do when starting a new job is read up on the company to get a feel for its policies and history. A simple Google search will give you some great information. Make a good impression by asking your boss if there is any information you can read or study before you start. If it’s after your first day, no worries, just make sure you take at least one evening to catch up on things you might have missed.
DID YOU KNOW? In 2007, more than 1.3 million new jobs were created, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Take comfort in the fact that those people had similar fears and anxieties about their first 30 days, too.
