So, I just recently joined a new company. Before I started I was wondering how I would get along with the employees at this new Job. Also, most of all like everyone. I was hoping I make new friends so I don’t end up being bored. But I followed these few steps. It has been great so far. I have new friends at work. We laugh and work at the same time. Atleast now I don’t have to worry about not wanting to get up in the morning to go to work. I’m always happy to go and most of all I love my job.
Most of the things you could do in order to fit into your new job are as follows :
If you have chosen the job that you feel passionate about then you have the first step checked. I love the job I chose so all that was left to fit in with the people I have to work with everyday.
So, let’s get to the first step.
1) Dress to Impress
The way you dress on your further day will set the tone to how people will see you or interact with you. Dress confidently but not too out there. Let people know you are confident with the way you dress but also that you are approachable.
2) Be polite
When you begin a new job. The main thing is to not rub off as snobbish or rude to any of your colleagues. You will be spending many days, months or years with those people. So be careful how you interact with them. Be cauteous and also polite.
3) Focus on work
Yes, this is the time your boss will expect you to show them why they hired you in the first place. You cannot be lazy with work or not be focused on it. Show them you are a hard worker and they made the right choice by choosing you for the job.
4) Be attentive
Now, this means you should be aware of your surroundings. Stay alert. Understand how things function at your new work place. Know who does what and make sure you are paying attention when you are being taught something new.
5) Be positive
Everyone wants to be around someone who is positive, alive and happy. Make sure your energy is vibrant and people around you can feel it from a distant. Your colleagues will want to be friends with you if they get good vibes from you.
6) Make friends
This does not mean you go around trying to talk to every single person forcefully. Be cordial. Try to talk to people who approach you. Make friends in the most natural way. Don’t force anything. Having friends at work will make work life easy and happy.
7) Always be on time
I know this should be your number one priority. You new office will monitor your timings. When you come in to work and when you leave. So make sure you are coming in on time and leaving after finishing your hours of the day. You don’t want to lose your job because you are always late. So sleep early. Get up early. Start your day with a new mind and get to work right on time.
8) Be punctual
The first few months try not to take too many sick leaves or not show for days. That would be very unprofessional and no job would tolerate such a lazy behaviour. So make sure you are taking care of your health so you don’t fall sick often and try to show up to work every single day.
9) Be open to corrections
Sometimes, being the new employee can be tough. You will make a lot of mistakes and you will be corrected thousands of times for not doing something right. Be open to suggestions and make sure you listen so you don’t make the same mistakes again. Every has to face the heat someday. You might as well just put your chin up, shove all your ego aside and learn.
10) Be helpful
This is very important. When someone needs your help at work. Do not hesitate to help them out if it is within your strength. The more you support your colleagues, the more they will learn to value you. Overall, a valuable employee is one that will always stick around longer.
I hope you guys benefited from this article. If you are beginning a new job. All the best and hope you are blessed everyday at your new job.

I am beginning my new job in August – just had a call back from the company saying that I got the job. I am very excited to begin.
I wish you well with your job too (not such a new job now I guess – how’s it all going?) xx
