The first day on a new job can be nerve-wracking. Common expectations are that the initial weeks and months will be a learning experience. Much like in the interview process, new employees should seek to make good impressions, listen more than they talk, be respectful, and focus on learning. Tips for making good first impressions include: *Dressing in alignment with others in the office. *Being punctual, always. *Being observant, polite, and helpful. *Showing confidence. *Being friendly while respecting boundaries. *Thinking things over before asking questions, then asking good questions. *Absorbing as much learning as possible. *Syncing online profiles (like LinkedIn) to reflect the new position.
