Starting a new job is exciting and terrifying at the same time. It teaches you new skills, gives you new challenges and of course, new work friends. Sometimes things just click instantly at a new job and you start feeling like a part of the team. Get comfortable and accept the environment instantly.
But always remember, there are certain things you need to be wary of — be it your body language, the way you talk or what you talk about, there are a few things that you should always refrain. For your own sake and professional ethics, avoid doing these things at your new job:
Talking excessively about your last job
Discussing your leanings and job role is absolutely fine. However, strictly avoid tiny details and indulging in unnecessary information about your last job.
Turning down lunch invites by colleagues
Be a part of the team. Even if you don’t want to be friends outside work, maintaining a healthy rapport helps to maintain the team spirit!
Taking advantage of flexible schedules
Just because you have an understanding leader who lets you come in late when you have a genuine problem, don’t turn this into a daily thing.
Being unwilling to take suggestions/constructive criticism
Always be open to suggestions from co-workers, seniors, and juniors. They all have varied perspectives and the feedback will help you grow.
Talking excessively about your personal life
Trust us, nobody wants to know about your dad’s sister’s cousin’s cat.
