You just got a new job and definitely it is going to be a new environment, new work scheme, new boss, and new workmates to get along and you will be facing and learn new challenges.
You will be at your adjusting and getting to know your way around everything pace, that you have to work on too to be able to carry on with the nor. the first impression of your new colleagues will be important especially on your first day, so, you have to show the right kind of interaction with everyone, together with the right attitude and character at work.
Do not rush into being over friendly but be a little reserved and get yourself acquainted with the daily routine of work and the people around you. 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.
Be comfortable in introducing yourself to a few people in a day, until you get to know everyone by name accordingly. Use this chance to make yourself comfortable, and start looking out on everyone else’s name so that you can slowly know who is and who is what.
The aim here is to get everyone to like you as much as possible, yet be polite and keep smiling, then go to people and ask questions about work, that way they will be comfortable and be at ease with you too when they know they are superior in the knowledge of work, even if you know it. This is also a way to start connecting with them and you will be guided along the way until you are used to your work and be confident in your ways.
Be focused and always pay attention, and keep away from conversations that does not concern you or work, to be safe. At first, you can build camaraderie and relationship with a person or two, but in time you will soon find yourself in a group of friends and colleagues.
Always remember that everyone has his or her opinion towards as a person, and you cannot trust and even please everyone, therefore, be keen on who you go along with yet always be polite, respectful towards everyone.
It will be a huge task actually, but when you have the confidence in yourself and just know how to deal with it fairly daily you will get by, and never forget to always be who you are.
