We've all been there.
That dreaded first day at the office. Of course, everyone gets nervous on their first day at any job, but offices in particular can appear to be extremely ‘grown-up’ and scary (or perhaps that’s just us?).
As a newbie, it can be difficult to know what to expect, and although everyone else appreciates that you’re new and might take a while to get into the swing of things, nobody wants to be the one who messes up on the very first day.
And we’re not just talking about the job itself, we’re talking about first appearances, office small talk and making friends. We’re here to answer some of the questions office newbies find themselves asking in the middle of the night before that dreaded first day…
“What time should I arrive?”
“How am I going to remember everyone’s names?!”
“WHY did I decide to pack a TUNA sandwich?!?”
Of course, no two office environments are the same, but there are some common factors that apply to every new office job.
That’s why we present you with the office newbie’s survival guide, which gives you all the necessary information for successfully surviving your first day (just remember not to take it too seriously!).
Be sure to add your own notes and top tips (by commenting below) and pass the guide on to any office newbies you know.
