Starting a new ANYTHING can be nerve wracking 😅, but starting a new job can sometimes feel like the biggest change we can make in our lives!! It affects so much of our day-to-day and can influence a lot of our overall happiness!

It’s natural to want a new role to be the right fit and worry about future challenges that will come with it, but over time and with experience, it gets easier to dive into something new!

Whats the best advice you’ve gotten when starting a new job? Whats one thing you wish you did differently from the start?? How do you know when things are finally going smoothly there and you’re all settled in? ✨

Be humble and do not ever get involved in drama. Open ears, and take notes if need be

Don't share anything personal. Keep your chit chat to work related issues or benign topics. Don't say anything bad about your last employers Keep, bosses or co-workers. Keep your eyes and ears open. People who are too friendly, share too much information, try to fill you in on all the office gossip are to be kept at a distance ... they are typically the pot stirers/drama makers. Take notes of what your taught, stay humble, remain quiet and do the job. Their will be plenty of opportunities in the future to show your talents, and prove your worth. Straight through the door is not the time.

H Phoebe,

I usually try to connect with my new co-workers, whether it is over lunch or a cup of coffee! To show the team that I am a team player, that I can communicate effectively and that I'm not afraid to share my ideas, and that I am happy about joining the team. I feel that by doing these things, it allows me to become more comfortable with being at a new company and it helps me adjust to the expectations of my role. And Drink Lots of Coffee!!! :)

Speaking of myself:

a) How do you know when things are finally going smoothly there and you’re all settled in?

  • This is a natural reflex for everyone. But the clearest indicator that you've finally settled in? You've stopped calling your position new to people you run into ...

b) What's one thing you wish you did differently from the start??

  • Change my routine. Sometimes all we need in our lives is to alter something in our daily routines that haven't been working for a long time. ...

c) What's the best advice you’ve gotten when starting a new job?

  • View every person you meet as a door that may lead you to a new opportunity. ...

Starting a new job can be very stressful. You are trying to perform a new task in a new environment and fit in with new people. Also, you want to stand out and shine to your boss. So how do you calm your nerves and keep from getting too nervous?

  1. Breathe, breathe, breathe. Inhale taking long deep breaths to relax.
  2. Be confident in your skills. You already got the job, so someone already had confidence in you.
  3. Don't be too hard on yourself. Remember that everyone understands what it's like to start something new. We have all sat in that seat before.

I just try to keep in mind that everyone is new at some point. Relax, be yourself, ask questions, pay close attention during training, take notes and try to connect with fellow co-workers. And remember they hired you for a reason.
