Deciding it’s time to look for a new job is a cycle of feelings – elation, excitement, dedication and of course, frustration. It would be amazing if it were as simple as finding your dream job, applying and getting hired on the same day, but you know all too well that’s far from the reality.
You’ve done the hard part of applying, interviewing, and enduring the endless waiting – you finally have the job. Beginning a new job is certainly exciting, but being the “new employee” on the floor is not always easy. It means a new onslaught of “firsts” is coming your way: a new environment, new skills to learn, new hours, new procedures, and new management. Making it through the first week may seem like an uphill climb, but it’s nothing you can’t handle. Check out Workbox’s Staffing handy survival guide to help you make your first week on the job a breeze.
