A new job can be intimidating, especially if it's your first time in a business environment. But there are ways to impress employers while being the newbie, according to the Harvard Business Review.
The attitude of fake-it-until-you-make-it can be a red flag instead of a selling point, said the article. Employers know there's a new worker and don't expect the newbie to know everything.
Colleagues and customers will be more impressed as the new hire goes beyond their job duties and serves others, the Harvard Business Review said. Serving others can quickly gain respect at work.
Respect can also be gained by eating with other workers. As the new hire shows interest in others, they will show interest in return. And each worker can end up teaching the newbie something valuable about the workforce, according to the Harvard Business Review.
When new hires work hard and show up on time, employers notice. However, if the employee is quickly burning out from working too hard, employers will be unimpressed. Finding a balance between work and lifestyle is important, the article said.
