Must Haves in Your First Day at Work


Related stories


Here are the must haves when you are going for your first day at work. Now this seems to be a very exciting moment for everyone, and it really is, especially for those who have their first jobs. So technically one of the things that you must aim for at this point in time is to try as much as possible to do your job, not mess it up, and eventually connect with your co-workers or simply show them that you are worth something and to show this, you must have these things on your first day.

Presentable Clothes

Always wear your most comfortable and presentable clothes, yes it should be both! Here’s why! On your first day, maybe you don’t have the issued uniform yet, thus you have to dress for the job and you also have to be comfortable with your own clothes, thus you have to look best and at the same time be comfortable in moving around. Having uncomfortable clothes makes you feel anxious and unsure of your movements. Comfortable work shoes couple with a comfortable suit would make your day in terms of doing your tasks and meeting everyone at work.


Always have your phone with you as it will be your best friend during this awkward few first days at work. You also need your phone to do your job efficiently. By this point in time, you also have to constantly communicate with other members of the department thus the importance of the phone. But in some cases, you also have to let go of it given that there are times that you have to do your work and that sometimes phones might seem unbecoming and out of place such as meetings.

Extra Cash

Always bring in some extra cash, why? Because of the dynamics in the workplace. so technically you are the new guy thus you don’t know the traditions and cultures in the workplace but still you have to acclimate and be cool with everyone, one thing to do that is to do whatever they do and just go with the flow. For example, during lunch breaks when they invite you to eat with them, you have to comply and you need some cash for that, or when they order some coffee and ask you, you should again comply for the sake of building rapport and connection.

Good Attitude

Lastly, is your good attitude! Nothing beats a person with a good sense of attitude around them. So, people generally judge you by the first impressions and by the first impression of your behaviour around them, thus it is important to display a positive atmosphere and predisposition by wearing your great personality and good attitude in your face, always flash and warm authentic smile. This way people accept you faster than when you wear a sullen face at your first day at work.

Always remember that in this point in time you are actually trying to build connection and rapport to other people in the workplace thus you have to have your best foot forward. Well, it would be like you are faking it, but rather you want people to know your worth and work ethic even on the first day.
