7 Tips on How to Adapt to a New Job


Do you remember how you came to your new job? What mistakes did you make? Here are our seven tips for those who want to better get along with a new job.

Team at work

Make friends
Having friends or at least one close colleague is a guarantee that you will feel comfortable in a team. In a team, it is also clear that you are friends with someone, then you came to stay for a long time, and so there is no sense for any intrigues.

Work, work and work again
Yes, one needs to work hard and try to do it as much as possible. People love the hard-working, and it will be useful to in expanding the personal horizons of your work capacity.

Do not forget to introduce yourself
Personally introduce yourself and do not expect that someone has already introduced you. Everyone in a week’s time would have known you and not after six months at work you still remain “brand new”.

Try not to do stupid things
Especially at first when you have not well infused into the team, it is better to refrain from dancing on the table during a corporate party or flirting with the boss. Beware of the desire to take home with you a corporate notebook or play computer games while at work.

Treat close colleagues
Do not carry kilograms of fast food in offices. Just sometimes, it is very nice when someone treat you with candy or donut in the morning. Do not be shy, make suggestions. This can make you be endeared to many people.

Do not make too much humor
Even if you are really the “soul of the company” and a storehouse of anecdotes, restrain yourself for now. People want to be taken seriously. Not everyone can laugh at oneself, especially if a newcomer made the jokes on them. Also, refrain from slang and strong expressions.

Be yourself
This is the main advice. It is really very businesslike. Otherwise, you would have to wear a “mask”, and this is very difficult with time. It is often gotten rid of only by quitting.
