Ask questions

No one expects you to solve all the problems of the company in your first days. So relax! It is important that you ask all the questions you need during your first few weeks in the company. Do not hesitate to ask for help from your colleagues if necessary. Remember that it is better to ask the right questions before you start and do things right the first time, rather than waste your energy and your time to start over.

Be proactive

During your first days in the company, you will usually be assigned small tasks. Once you have completed what you were given initially, do not hesitate to take initiatives and ask for other missions. Anyway, do not you rest and try to do more and more. This will be a testimony of your great motivation and your involvement in the company.

Be on time

Being on time is something that is naturally expected from your employer. On your first day in a company it is highly recommended to arrive a little earlier than your co-workers to make a good impression. Anticipate the journey time and be sure you have enough time to avoid the traffic to arrive with 10-15mn ahead. Also make sure to be one of the last people to leave the office the first few days. This will give you a better idea of the company's culture. 

Take notes

Unless you have a photographic memory, it is essential to take notes on anything you find useful, like the rules within the startup. Even if you find it unnecessary and boring, it is important to attend all meetings to facilitate your integration. There is nothing worse than a person asking the same question several times on the same subject. Such behavior demonstrates a lack of attention to detail.

Be positive

Nothing better than to adopt a positive attitude from the start. Be enthusiastic, it will show that you are open to others, it will facilitate the exchanges within the company. Last point, you should always leave your extra-pro problems at home.
