Description

No one expects you to know everything on your first day—or your first month!—on the job. But that doesn’t mean you can’t impress your new employer and co-workers even while you’re still figuring things out.

Walk around, eat lunch in the kitchen, and ask people what they do, what they work on, and what gets them excited about being here every day.

If you make an extra effort and time to learn more about the company and work, your boss loves that.

By the time we’ve actually hired someone, we expect that he or she knows our current staff well enough to start cracking jokes and having fun from day one. If you aren't comfortable enough to laugh a little, that’s a sign of a problem. – Claus Moberg

On the first day, work to identify all of your internal customers, introduce yourself, and schedule time with those customers to interview them on a broad range of subjects. Be curious, thoughtful, and open.

This is important because it gives direction and determines the priority based on the deadlines and importance of each task.

The AMCAT is India’s first employability assessment test that help fresh graduates to get their first job quickly and efficiently.
