Starting your first day at work

Posted on May 13, 2020 at 11:50 am

With the current pandemic in the UK, many people are finding themselves off work or maybe just starting to return. For some people, they may not be able to return to their job as so many companies are struggling to come through this and may be forced to close. If that is the case, then over the next few months there will be an influx of people looking for work. Once you have found a new job, you may start to worry about your first day. It can be very daunting but there are some things you can do to calm those first day nerves and tips and advice on how to ensure you have a great first day.

When preparing yourself to start a job, ensure that you allow yourself plenty of time in the morning to get ready and ideally have everything organised the day before. Decide what outfit you are going to wear and make yourself a packed lunch so you know that you have not got to worry about that in the morning. It’s always a good idea to be ready in enough time to sit down and have a cuppa before you set off and gather yourself.

You make a lot of impressions on your first day so you need to make sure that you come across as professional and willing to learn and being on time is vital. Ensure you listen to instructions clearly but do not be afraid to ask if you don’t understand something. Your first day will usually fly by, so be sure to try and enjoy it.
