Tips for First Time Office Bearers

The new office experience is dreadful for many. There are many questions that may arise in one’s mind. What to wear to look confident? Or how to start a conversation with the colleague? The nervousness is very normal for a newbie. Here are some tips that can help new office bearers and highlight their positive traits.

1. Early Arrivals, Late Departures

No matter how well you handle things even if being late, punctuality must be practiced. Being on time to the workplace leaves a good impression of employees. But, try scheduling your watch for fifteen minutes’ early arrival. If you think it is not your cup of tea, then doctors can guide you 

This trick is beneficial in cities with high traffic. You can wait in the lobby and prepare yourself for the new day. Being one of the last persons to leave the office might give you the real feeling of the office culture. You may even end up making friends with some colleagues.

2. Dressing up Appropriately

Great fashion designer Miuccia Prada once said that your attire represents yourself and can help you connect with people. Choose an outfit that suits the office arena or call your manager for the dress code.

Even overdressing will work, as it shows that you are taking office seriously. Also, taking an extra piece for an emergency helps like a jacket for the air-conditioned rooms, just in case. There are tips on the internet to make it even easier for you to decide.

3. Practice Introducing Yourself

Introducing yourself is an art. Choosing the right words at the correct occasion is difficult even for the extroverts. For a fresher at the office, introducing will be a recursive activity. Try to learn how to smile that looks like you mean it and the gentle handshake. Here are some tips that can help. 

4. Follow the Rules

There are a lot of dos and don’ts in any firm. Take a look at the notice board for the set of rules. Keep a check on your activities at least for the initial period. This can prevent you from becoming a clumsy employee.

5. A little bit of Intellectuality but Politeness

Try to read about your company, not just your department. It is obvious that one will not get the whole idea and no one expects it from a fresher. But having a little knowledge can show your intellect. A much better option is to listen carefully and ask questions. This is a good way to show that one is interested in the discussion.

Politeness is the key to new friendships. Do remember to thank the people who helped you around. Also, while being less annoying don’t avoid talking to your managers about work or getting help from colleagues.

This is going to be a new experience in your professional life. So, be excited and RELAX! Remember, confidence is the key. Believe in yourself, be a good human being and you will definitely succeed.
