Make a Lasting Impression with New Employers

A new job is a great way to start fresh with a company, learn a new industry, and get to know new people. As you begin your new job, making a great first impression is important. Below, Premier Staffing offers workplace behaviors that will help you

Listen and Learn

As a new employee, being an active listener is extremely important to beginning success. While training for or learning the position be sure to observe and listen your best to all instructions and information given.

Ask Questions 

A huge part of starting a job is learning and getting adjusted by asking questions. It is always okay to ask questions when instructions or directions are unclear.

Offer Help and Assistance

 New jobs can take time to learn and adjust to. If you find yourself not knowing what to do or without a task, offer to fill in or help out a coworker. Your willingness to help is a great way to learn more about your coworkers and their job and responsibilities.

Go the Extra Mile

Extra effort to complete the job sooner, help others, or work hard are qualities employers seek in long-term employees. Making that extra effort in the beginning is a great way to let your boss or supervisor know you are serious about the job.

Be Polite and Outgoing

A pleasant, outgoing attitude is a great way to make a lasting impression in a new workplace. A friendly, positive attitude will allow others to get to know you and help you make better connections.

Arrive On Time

Traffic, sick kids, and other mishaps happen. However, always do your best to be on time or even early for work. It is not only required in the workplace to be on time, but showing up on time every day will confirm to your boss your dedication and commitment to the job.

Have Patience

In a new work environment it can be easy to get frustrated with unknown tasks and processes. As you learn, have patience in your work and with those training you. You’ll catch on quickly if you are patient and willing to learn.

Follow Rules and Guidelines

Always adhere to the rules or guidelines that exist in the workplace. If you aren’t allowed to have cell phones, keep yours tucked away. Be sure to dress appropriately and take timely breaks only as allowed. Your willingness to adhere to workplace guidelines will help you make a lasting impression with your boss or supervisor.

Work Hard

 Above all else, in any new position work hard. When you work hard your efforts will not go unnoticed and can lead to great things in the future.
