Our Team have put together some tips that might help you to help you survive your first week at a new job:

  1. Be prepared: Before you start your new job, make sure you have all the necessary information and paperwork. This includes your employee contract, tax forms, and any other documentation required by your employer.

  2. Arrive early: On your first day, make sure you give yourself enough time to find your new workplace and make a good first impression with your new employer and colleagues.

  3. Be positive: Starting a new job can be challenging, but it's important to stay positive and maintain a good attitude.

  4. Ask questions: Never be afraid to ask questions, even if they may seem silly or obvious. It's better to ask than to make a mistake down the track.

  5. Take the time to get to know your new colleagues: You'll be spending a lot of time with them, so it's important to build good relationships as you can learn a lot from your colleagues.

  6. Learn the company culture: Every company has its own culture and it's important to understand the culture of your new employer. It’s also a good idea to find out about the company’s ethos and values, to see if they align with yours.

  7. Be organised: Starting a new job can be overwhelming, so it's important to stay organised. Keep a diary or calendar of important tasks and deadlines so you can stay on top of your workload and meet deadlines.

  8. Don’t forget self-care: Starting a new job can be stressful, so it's important to take care of yourself. Make sure you get enough sleep, eat well, and exercise; this will help you to stay energised and focused during your first week at work.

  9. Be patient: Starting a new job can take time to get used to. You may not know everything right away, and that's okay.

  10. Don’t hesitate to ask for help: If you are struggling in any way, don't hesitate to ask for help. It could be from your manager, colleague or professional - they’ll be more than happy to help.

Starting a new job can be a challenging experience, but it doesn’t have to be stressful!

Remember to stay positive, be prepared, ask questions, and take care of yourself. With a little bit of patience and hard work, you'll be able to settle in and thrive in your new role
