Make a Good First Impression
“You never get a second chance to make a first impression,” the old adage goes. Nothing could be more true about starting a new job. It's important to make the best impression possible.
You can start with your work attire. Even if you went on four or five interviews at the company and almost everyone was wearing jeans, you shouldn’t show up in your favorite denim on the first day. It’s better to be a little over dressed than under dressed. That said, keep the suit at home in more casual offices where a nice pair of slacks or skirt with a button-down shirt or blouse will do. Of course, if you have an assigned uniform, wear it. You don’t want to express your individuality in your first 30 days.
Also make sure your hair and/or makeup looks neat and appropriate. Keep the dark eye shadow for the nightclub and, if you don’t have a clearly defined mustache or beard, arrive clean shaven.
