In my experience, there are two types of first days when it comes to a job or internship.
The first type is the typical training day where you get acclimated to the environment, maybe read a thick employee manual, and learn everyone’s names. While this might not be the most thrilling day of your job, it’s crucial in adjusting to a new position.
- Write everything down. Whether it is names, assignments, or directions, it helps to have something to refer back to.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help. No one expects you to know everything, especially not on the first day.
- Be confident! You have experience, even if it’s only learning from a textbook. You’re more prepared than you think.
