ATTEND COMPANY EVENTS
The best way to set the ball of progression rolling for yourself when you start a new job is to network amongst your colleagues if and when you can. It’s also a fab way to start building new friendships however, while you may want to be the life and soul of the party, it’s best to go easy on the booze unless you want to make an absolute boob of yourself and risk being fired!
If you’re going for the I am easy and have no self-respect look then dressing scantily clad is what you will do which might see you receive your marching orders soon after you start! Eek!!
GO TO LUNCH WITH [or at least talk to] DIFFERENT PEOPLE
Having your own lunch buddy, or crew is lovely however, getting to know as many of your colleagues as possible is good for your mental stimulation, those creative juices and, of course, you might learn something new, or even come across some amazing opportunities.
BE IN THE KNOW
KEEP ADDING TO YOUR PORTFOLIO
KNOW WHEN TO SWITCH OFF COMPLETELY
LOG THINGS OF IMPORTANCE
MAINTAIN YOUR PRIVACY and DIGNITY
There is nothing wrong with an ‘office romance’ and it’s so lovely when real, committed relationships develop however, you do not need to make your private business the talk of the entire company! Keep everything going down [no pun intended here] between you and your significant [work] other strictly hush and you’ll most probably have a much better connection with them than if everyone were to get involved.
ALWAYS SIGN OUT
Remember to close your social media pages, online banking, google searches and the rest before you leave your desk!!
HAPPY NEW JOB!!!!
