New job? First day, first week? How should I be treated?
Starting a job, particularly your first job can be a scary experience. Even though you have been given the job – you will still be on trial. So make a good impression during your first week.
We have some advice and information that might help:
- First impressions. Arrive on time and ready to work hard.
- Take your time. Listen and learn for the first few days. Don’t say too much about yourself to start with.
- Learn the job. Ask appropriate questions and make notes if you need to. Find your way around the building. Pay close attention to health and safety advice.
