  • Love slide#4 this is a great piece of advice because it takes you out of the 'me' moment of worrying about yourself and the new job. Instead you gain perspective and momentum; you are either focused on someone other than yourself and gaining insight from others about your job and your co-workers. This will help you in the future as you grow and progress in your job role and future career path. Being a good listener and lifelong learner is an invaluable trait!

How to Excel at Work From Day 1

  1. BROUGHT TO YOU BY The women of Connect: Professional Women’s Network offer advice on how to make a positive impression at a new job. Overcoming First-Day Jitters
  2. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK “Know that you will make mistakes, even simple ones. It will get easier. Even though you think you will never get this - you will. Don't get offended by other co- workers who are rude or impatient - not everyone is a good teacher. Try and hook up with kind ones.” Julie McKee-Leigh, Wellness Consultant
  3. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK “Relax. You were hired because you will be an asset to the organization. Trust your own ability to get the job done. Also, smile.” Jana Davenport, Credit & Collections
  4. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK “Spend time listening. Schedule 15-minute conversations with at least 10 people to learn what they do. What's their background? Where are they from? What do they spend the majority of their time on? What are the most frustrating and rewarding elements of the job?” 4 Molly K. McPherson, International Public Policy Analyst
  5. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK “Begin as you intend to continue. It's hard to cut back on 60-hour weeks once you have established that as your schedule. Know your limitations and give only reasonable expectations until you understand the workload and flow.” Laura Henry, Talent Acquisition, Leadership Hiring & Executive Recruiter
  6. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK “The important thing to remember is that this new job will entail a learning curve. Be patient, listen attentively and trust in your abilities. If you got the job, it means you have what they were looking for. Prove them right!” Carolina Brenna, Experienced Administrative Professional
  7. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK “Schedule time weekly with your manager for at least 3 months to ensure you have the right goals and direction. Do not be afraid to ask questions. Ask to shadow your manager/mentor in meetings if you are not included so you can understand their vantage point and how you can help them.” Kathy Minton, Senior Consultant
  8. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK “Never do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or will compromise your values. Don't be in a hurry to impress everyone--that'll make enemies or build resentment, too. If you have a brilliant idea, speak up.” Jody Caccavale, Accounts Payable Manager
  9. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK “Keep out of the drama! I know that sounds obvious, but office drama will quickly make enemies and allows people to make judgments about you that are hopefully unwarranted.” Tracy Graziano, Filmmaker and Video Editor
