When you first start in a new job, it will be of the utmost importance to you that you start getting along with everyone as soon as possible. Although you do want to impress your new boss with your skill at the job, and ensure that you know what you are doing so that your job is easier for you on a day to day basis, because you will be seeing and working with these people every day, you do want to make a start with getting to know and getting on with your colleagues. Here are some tips for getting on better with your new colleagues from the day you start in your job.
- Find out about them. Many people starting in a new job, moving to a new town and so on will only really make the effort to let people know about them, because they are the new person in town. However, it seems a lot less self-involved, and will impress people a lot more, if you ask questions and make a real effort to learn about them.
- Be humble. You may have done this job a thousand times before and be able to do it with your eyes closed, but if someone is trying to teach you how to do your job in a new company you should stay quiet and pay attention. After all, they may have information you do actually need to know.
- Be friendly. Even if you are quite shy, greet everyone with a smile and say hello as you walk around the building. Otherwise, shyness can be mistaken for standoffishness and people might not want to bother quite as much with you. Also, friendliness is usually greeted with similar friendliness.
- Ask questions. If you don’t understand something, ask questions. People will usually be happy to help and it can be a great conversation starter.
