How To Handle The New Environment At A New Job
You now have a new job, and it will be a complete turn around to start over again with getting familiar about everything as everything else is new from the work environment and work style, new boss, new routine, and new people to work and get along with.
In this pace you will be adjusting and trying to get yourself familiar with all these as what goes around and everything else. It is important that you show the right interaction and attitude at your new job, because if you are overly friendly and bubbly on your first day, everyone else will think you to be so fresh.
Do not get too excited and go overboard to being all the way friendly, reserve yourself, and focus on getting acquainted with how everything goes with the work routine and the how as well are the people around you go about their daily routine. Because, you will not be able to know everyone’s name in one go, but be familiar only with looks so take your time, anyways you will always have that immediate friend that can always be the person seated right close to you.
Introduce yourself to a few people in a day until you get everyone’s name familiarized so that you can easily make yourself comfortable with them in time too. This is a way to start and be comfortable and you can slowly learn each day as who is who and whatnot.
Be polite and smile, and do not hesitate to ask questions and get info about your work if something is unclear, it is a way of opening up conversations and familiarizing the flow of work. This way, they will also open up to help you and guide you along the way until you get the gist of the work at hand and can carry on.
Focus on your work and do not indulge on conversations that is not work-related and that does not concern you, but be observant and keen and opt to learn more about the office environment. Being new, you will be usually with a person or two, but in time you will be going with groups of people, so for the meantime know better the minimal and establish camaraderie.
Bear in mind that, there are different personalities at work, and you cannot please everyone or make everyone comfortable with you, so stick to know you feel you can trust yet still be respectful and diligent as you learn about this company you’re in.
Indeed it is a great responsibility personally, but by just knowing what you have to do and where you have to be in the right place and crowd, you will make your new job a comfortable one and in time you will gain confidence in dealing with everyone.
