Your First Day on the Job
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     RRRRIIIIIINNNNNNNNGGGGGGG! Your alarm clock goes off. You hit the snooze. Then you realize what day it is. You start to panic! It's your first day on your new job. You want to make a good impression. Relax and take a deep breath.
 
2     Your boss will expect you to be nervous. She knows you will probably make some mistakes. She is more concerned about how you will do after your first day. Employees have to learn new skills. They have to follow a schedule and meet deadlines.
 
3     New employees also have to learn to get along with other members of the team. And most important, they have to get along with their supervisors. Follow these simple tips to make your first day, and every day, a good one.
 
4     If you work hard the night before, getting ready will be a breeze. Call the person who hired you. Find out what you are expected to wear. Pick out an outfit. Make sure it is cleaned and pressed.
 
5     Pack your lunch the night before. Set your alarm a few minutes early. You want to be sure to get to work at least fifteen minutes before you have to clock in. Shower, eat breakfast, and take the early bus to work.
