Tips for Feeling your Best at a New Job

Starting a new job can be nerve-racking! I would know - I started my new job today! What helped calm my nerves were some tips I found online. Throughout my trip in the blogosphere, there were a lot of recommendations - like bringing snacks or going to bed early. While these are solid ideas, they weren't the ones that stood out to me. What resonated with me were the ones that had to do with preparedness and confidence. If you're about to start a new job, here are some of my favorite tips.

"Until you know the company's culture and dress code, play it safe and wear business casual or professional clothing. As time progresses, you'll be able to add more of your personal style to your work wardrobe, but on day one, let your work make the greatest statement." - Real College Student of Atlanta

"Showing up early shows them that you are responsible and looking forward to your work there." - Simply Bumbling Along

"You think you'll remember everything and inevitably you'll end up either remembering wrong and getting called out on it or having to ask again. You don't want your boss to think you weren't listening the first time around." - Career Contessa

"Make sure to introduce yourself to every person you come across, and do your best to remember their name. You're going to be spending a lot of time with these people, and it's best to get started on the right foot." - Lauren Conrad

"Show up to work as the best version of yourself and let the rest work itself out. You're there because they saw something in you that they think meshes well with their office culture and goals, so let those aspects of your personality shine." - Fortune

What tips do you have for your first day at work?
