Now Go To Work
OK, You got the job. Now here are a few things that
will help you get by the Probation Period, and to Keep Your Job.
Get a good nights sleep.
Get up early, eat a good Breakfast,
Dress appropriately. Wear Clean Clothes, get your hair
trimmed, Look Sharp, Be Sharp.
Get to your New Job 15 Minutes Early. Get there 10
Minutes Early every Day After The First Day
Be Positive, Listen, Listen, Listen. Do not get wordy
or act like you know it all.
Take a short
Morning Break, if they actually do. If you smoke Make it a Short one (think
about quitting) only during recognized Smoke Breaks.
Do NOT take
many smoke breaks.
Take a short, reasonable Lunch
Take a short Afternoon Break, if they actually do. I
know some companies do not take breaks under the current Economic Conditions.
Now it is Quitting Time. Do Not Hurry. Stay for 10-15
Minutes, clean up your work area, organize for tomorrow.
If you get to work 10-15 Minutes early and Leave 10-15
Minutes late, you will make an impression, and possibly keep your job beyond
those that "watch the clock". I know of some of our Participants
that did not "watch the clock" and survived the layoffs
If you just do not feel like going to work one day, go
anyway. Unless you have a Fever or Puking your guts out Go To Work. If you
must stay home, CALL THE OFFICE AND TALK TO SOMEONE (Like the BOSS). Do not,
Do Not, Do Not, NOT CALL. You will Loose the job and not have a good
referral for the next one.
BE RESPONSIBLE. There are probably Thousands of people
out there looking for a job, KEEP YOURS!
Lastly, Keep looking for a Job, even after getting one. You will find that
getting a better job is easier when you have a job.
DO NOT Quit your Job until you actually have one. You
may become short of money and cannot pay your bills. This can cause undo
stress. The stress may show up when interviewing.
