How To Handle Being The New Girl At Work

Image Source
At different stages in your career, you’re likely to have a new job. Whether we’re talking about your first job after school or university, or your second job, third, or even a new job in your golden years, you will often get that same feeling, because it can be intimidating to start any new job. You may worry about it or feel apprehensive, and that’s all very normal - trust me. We all feel like this from time to time. However, you don’t have to dread it. Instead, you can be excited about your new job and actually feel ready for your first day. Not only that, but you can make sure that you settle in well without feeling totally green. Let’s see how you can handle being the newbie so much better.

1. Know You’re Qualified

First of all, you need to know that you’re actually qualified for the job. You're the one that got it, aren't you? So, ask yourself - what are you really worried about? You earned this job on merit. Sure, you need to settle in at a new place, but before you know it, your new place will feel like home!

2. Pull Together A Perfect Wardrobe

Now, power dressing is a thing. So, if you want to feel confident, you need to dress the part. On the run up to your new job, you’ll want to think about getting the right wardrobe together. Think about the outfits that you can work with in your role and have them planned out in your mind.

3. Prepare The Night Before

When it comes to the first day, you can really make a difference by preparing properly the night before. We all worry about it, sure, but if you’re prepared, the uncertainty will ease. For this, you’re going to want to lay out your outfit and get your bag ready. Put your phone into your choice of premium phone case, do the same with your laptop, and get a brand new notebook ready too. Swotty? Yes, potentially - but, it will make you feel ready to take on your brand new role.

4. Sleep Well

All that’s left to do the night before is to get a good sleep, because it really does matter, and you really do need to make sure that you’re well rested and ready to take the world by storm. When you wake up, you can then carry that feeling on with a good breakfast and by getting your lunch together for the day, then put your fabulous first day outfit on and get ready to rock!

5. Make A Killer First Impression

Finally, when you get to work on your very first day, you’re going to want to make the right impression, because we all know that first impressions count, and you only ever get one shot. So, decide how you’re going to be. What do you want to be known for? What kind of image or vibe do you want to give off? Then make sure that your actions and attitude follow suit. We all have to be newbies at one time or another, but it’s what you make of your fresh start that counts.
