  1. I start a new job in a few weeks, does anyone have any good tips on making a good first impression?!
     
  2. Arrive early.

    Dress perfectly. Dress as if you had your boss's job.

    Learn as much as you can about the company before day one. (Online, stockholder reports, whatever.)

    Super legible handwriting (I totally fail at this).

    Bring lunch and eat lunch at desk first week so you can learn, learn, learn.

    Stay hugely away from gossip. No matter what.

    Good luck!
     
  3. Don't flirt with your boss!!!

    Good luck...don't be too nervous.
     
  4. ProfNot gave awesome tips!

    I also think you should wear certain colors under your suit (if you have to wear one) such as red, blue, or green - they each are emotion colors. Green is for success, Blue for trust and tranquility, and Red is a power color as well as passion and strength. There are more colors with other reasons but my Mom said she always looks for these 3 colors when interviewing.

    Plain or neutral nails
    Don't gossip
    Be yourself and think before you speak!
     
  5. ;) good one!
     
  6. Just come with an open attitude willing to learn and listen, and don't act overly confident (I had a new coworker do this once and it drove us crazy). Good luck! You'll do well!
     
  7. Congrats! What line of work will you be in?
     
  8. Lol...it's always good to pass on lessons that one has learned! :biggrin:
     


  9. This may not be allowed. I know at my office they frown on it.
