Don't Do This On Your New Job

20

Getting a new job can come with excitements and you just can't wait to show your boss and your colleagues how brilliant and resourceful you are. You just can't wait to impress them. You may even think the people already hired are not doing well. But before you ruin your stay in your new organisation, read this 1. Never try to outshine those who have been there.: this is one of the mistakes newbies make. They always feel like they know better, they boycott the people that have been there and want to be the boss's favourite. You will get tired and when you bounce back you will realize it's not actually as you think, there are people who have been there, respect them 2. Minimize the use of the word "I": even if you are responsible for 99% of the job done, you have to use we in your reporting. The use of " I" in an organisation is awkward. Try to master the word "we". The bosses already know your contributions, they're not dumb...but they won't tell u...they will just be assigning you to new tasks. So u don't have to use "I" to prove you are resourceful or capable. 3. Don't start doing anything you know you cannot continue: You are just coming and you do task outside your job description to please the boss...hmmmm you will soon get tired and you will look like a hypocrite later. If you know you cannot continue collecting your boss's bag any time he/she comes to the office don't even start it. Keep your peace. If you know you cannot keep buying food for everyone in the office don't even start it, cos when you stop...hmmm you know 4. Listen more than you talk; most newbies are full of energy, they hardly listen, they just keep talking. Listen to others, understand them before making your points, don't be in a haste to talk without understanding what others are sayin 5. Be friendly but don't be a mugu. Some of your senior colleagues will use the advantage that you are a leaner to use you in many ways. Be friendly and firm
