5 Best Ways To Make A Good First Impression At Your Workplace

It is always said that first impression last longer. How true is this statement?

It’s very true and accurate.

 Looking for a job is a nerve- wracking experience and of course the pressure we pass through during job interviews aren’t small at all.

 Finally after getting the job, you should never underestimate the importance of a good first impression especially the first day at work. Definitely, starting a new job can be a little bit stressful, you will have to figure out every procedure and meet everyone.

Your first day at work will teach you a lot of things that includes the personalities of your co-workers, the pattern and method of operation that aren’t mentioned before you got the job, the lines not to cross and those you shouldn’t pay attention to.

So these are the 5 best ways to make a good first impression at your workplace:

1. Build up a positive attitude

Building up a positive attitude at the first day at work will make a great impression about you. Be happy to be part of the team and let it show through to everyone you have an interaction with. Do not be bothered about your personal problems, concentrate more on your new job and its opportunities. Avoid distractions and put up a proper office etiquette.

2. Dress well

The way you dress can make a good first impression at your office. Before resuming, you should know the dress code of the organization because dress code varies in organizations.

If you are working in a professional place like finance or law, you should dress neat and professional. It is not necessary you wear a suit. Do not wear clothes that are too tight or too loose, make sure you are comfortable and do not undress or overdress.

3. Displaying confidence (self confidence)

Self-confidence means having a full trust in one’s own skills, decisions and abilities. Your  first day at work must reflect  that you are self-aware of your strengths and weaknesses. Note, displaying confidence at work is a gradual process which requires practice that has to begin at your first day at work. The best way to display confidence in order to make a good first impression at your office includes:

  • Make sure you are proud and instill in yourself that you have a unique trait.
  • Evaluate yourself with positive words. Do not allow negative thoughts and criticism because this can lead to self-doubt. Pay close attention to what you say to yourself and what you would say to your co-workers.
  • Self realistic goals and expectations for yourself.
  • Relate well with co- workers, offer help to others and in turn you will receive help.

4. Ask questions and help when necessary

It is never expected of you to know everything about the organization on your first day at work, so make sure you ask for clarification and help when in need rather than spending much time on a task in a wrong way.

5. Presenting to be a leader when opportunity present itself

Developing a leadership skill can arise at any position at work, not even reaching the managerial level. But how can you act right when an opportunity is opened for you to lead a team in order to complete a task?

Firstly, you should know that a team leader provides directions to other members of the team to achieve a common goal. Secondly, make sure you are transparent to your team members, communicate well to them. Also, learn to make quick decisions especially when goals are at risk. Build rapport with your team members and also consider their contributions, never think less of them. A good leader must also be willing to learn, don’t rely only on your contributions. All these can build up your confidence as a good leader.

Final Thought On Good First Impression

Try your possible best to be yourself. Do not pretend to be someone else, just because you want to make an impression. First impression last longer and it defines who you are, some people never forget the first impression you gave them, so make sure you learn to make good first impression not only at your workplace but wherever you go.
