You’ve arrived at your new job and things are looking pretty good so far. But what’s next? Asking questions when working in an exciting new position can be tricky. Some employers will welcome the interaction, while others won’t. Knowing how to ask questions (and not get asked questions that you don’t feel comfortable answering) is one of the keys to a successful new job search.
Your first day on the job may be your first impression of your new manager. An impression, however, that lasts throughout the entire day and even long after hours have gone by. That first impression is important, and you want to be able to quickly and easily get the opportunity to “make a good impression.” So open your mouth and listen to your new colleagues attentively. This will give you a chance to gauge how your manager relates to you.
It’s important to build trust early on. The way you initially approach your manager may impact your relationship with them for the whole term of your new job. If you approach them cold or distant during the first day or two, they may view you as aloof and distant. On the other hand, if you show enthusiasm, openness, and interest, your new colleagues will see you as a fun person to be around. Your attitude toward your new colleagues will make or break your relationship with your manager.
In order to put your best foot forward and create lasting good first impressions, you should try to remember certain guidelines when looking for your new colleagues in the eye. First impressions are often made in the beginning, so you want to make the best of it. While sitting in the meeting room waiting for the meeting to begin, take a few minutes to practice saying hello and goodbye to each of your new colleagues. Practice your voice and your posture to make sure that you come across well in this short exchange. If you can, practice the ‘hello, how are you?’
Another great way to create lasting good first impressions is to ask questions. Many people skip over the process of asking questions during the interview process because they think that it takes too much time. However, the process of asking questions is essential to creating a great relationship with your new colleagues. Asking questions not only lets your new boss know that you are interested in their company, but it also allows you to gain clarification on their company’s goals and direction. So, even if you are sure that you know all the basics about the company, asking questions is always a great way to show you care about them and their company.
