It’s My First Day of Work

Dear Jean,

I just graduated and have my first “real” job (I’m not flipping burgers any more!).  I really want to make a good impression and start out right.  Do you have any advice?

Congratulations on landing your first job.  Here are some basic things to help you get the right start on your first day.  Go to bed early and get up with plenty of time in the morning.  It is important that you arrive at your first day rested, properly dressed, and at least 5 to 10 minutes early.

Keep an open attitude and listen well when your manager gives you instructions.  Take notes if you have trouble remembering lots of information coming to you all at once.  There will be a lot to learn.  If you do all of these things, you should be off to a great start.
