ALL U NEED IS A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR AND ALWAYS STAY ALERT!!, MAYBE A PERSON DON`T FIT W/ THE COLLEAGUES DUE TO THAT THEY MIGHT BE A SHY PERSON.IF UR THE THE TYPE OF PERSON THAT THE 1RST CONVERSATION IS ABOUT THE WEATHER, U SUCK.MAYBE START W/HOW LONG U BEEN W/THIS COMPANY AND WHAT IS THE OUTCOME OF THIS COMPANY, THEN U COME UP W/ OTHER CONVERSATION, LIKE WHAT U SAW ON TV. MAYBE COMEDY,HORROR, BUT SAY SOMETHING, AND U WILL GET A FRIENDLY RESPOND.WELL U ALL HAVE A SAFE YEAR.
The first impression is ever so critical. Like it or not, people will make a judgement soley on your apperance. And the first conversation I have with superiors or subordinates is the perfect time to list my accomplishments. I usually postpone my shortcomings after I have established a rapport with my fellow workers. And I downplay my bad judgements and rarely, if ever, mention the several times I was arrested for drunk driving and shoplifting.
"you want to be able to site your accomplishments throughout the year, including those achieved within those first critical 100 days."Site? You're fired.
Great post Sylvia. The sad fact is that most office working environments are just as you described.
Good advice. A little food for thought. thanks
I am also a little bit nervous about starting a new job.I have been unemployed for over a year now. The job that I left was full of nasty, and unprofessional people, so Im glad that I left. They had different values, than I had, and I didnt seem to fit in with their conversations, and ideas. It was defenetely time to look for a new and better job! Sometimes, its best to leave a job, if it causes you to changeyour beliefs, and personal standards. I think that I had been a good role model for the other workers, and I always tried to stand my ground, when it came to how I behaved at work. I did learn alot about how to handle various difficult situations, and will continue to be a good role model at my new job, and hope that they will look up me, for my standards, and personalesteem in ethics!
