At Liberty Staffing, we want you to succeed in your professional life. We would like to provide you with some tips to help you make a positive impression on your supervisor and coworkers at your new job. 

1. Dress for Success

First impressions start with your appearance. Be sure to dress for success. A pressed collared shirt and dress pants go a long way. Have these ready before your scheduled start date. 

2. Arrive Early 

There's nothing worse than arriving late to your new job. Things happen, but try your best not to be late for your new job. Arriving late on your first day will cause you to look bad to your supervisor and coworkers. 

Aim to arrive early to your new position. This will take some prior scheduling on your part, but it will be worth it. After all, your goal is to make a good first impression, and to excel in your new role. 

3. Introduce Yourself

We understand that not everyone  is outgoing, but it's important to take the initiative and introduce yourself to everyone in your department. If the department is large, you may not get a chance to introduce yourself on the first day, but make it a point to introduce yourself sometime within your first week. 

Introduce yourself and chat for a bit with your coworkers. Build a friendly but professional connection from the start. Let your team know just how excited you are to be joining the department! 

4. Bring in Snacks/Refreshments

You'll definitely make friends if you bring in snacks or coffee/tea. This doesn't have to be on your very first day, but sometime within your first week would be nice. The gesture shows that you are a team player, and that you take initiative. Not only that, but this is a great way to break the ice and start a conversation with your team members. 

5. Meet With Your Supervisor and Get Started

One thing is for sure, make sure to meet with your supervisor and get started with your training and on boarding. You don't want to fall behind. Get as organized as you can straight from the start. If you've finished a task and you're unsure of what to do next, ask your supervisor. Keeping busy is important from the get-go.
