Starting a new job can be very stressful, you want to make a good impression on your new boss and on your co-workers.  You don’t want to start your reputation on a bad note.

Here are some tips to remember when you start a new position, or you are currently working.

Don’t listen to gossip, you can find yourself involved in something that isn’ true and it can label you as someone who can’t be trusted.

Show up to work on time, or even before your start time.  This doesn’t make you the bosses pet, it shows that you are dedicated to your job and that you enjoy it.

Be nice, no matter how someone may treat you unfairly no can complain that you are too nice to them.

If you have an issue with another employee, follow the process, try not to get irritated and strike back, that will only make you look as bad as the employee you are having a problem with.

Respect other peoples choices, you may not agree with them but you also may not know all of the information that brought them to make that choice.

Each day remind yourself that you are good at what you do, strive to learn more so you can take on more responsibility.  This will increase your chances of a promotion and will also help you in the future.

When responding to an email that you think is unfair, step back and think before you reply, once you send that email, you can’t bring it back, it will always be out there.

Be nice, we are all human and we all make mistakes.
