Freshers are the most excited souls on the planet, and despite how heroic they may feel in the cocoon of their college, they find themselves on the sidetrack when they explore. The new determination and aim seem to be a big unimaginable burden on the shoulders not two days into the office. What you think is a place to dress nicely and flaunt your skills turns out to be a real battle where you have to prove and excel yourself every day. Apart from rogue skills like these, you even need to build a connection between employees. These are an everyday hustle you witness and defeat. Keeping aside these battleship subjects, there are subtler more exciting fronts to the first day of the job as well. When you start packing your stuff days before you have to go, you start showing the courage and the confidence to see it actually come true.
But what are these things that you need before your first day, and why?
- To show ownership
Ownership here refers to owning yourself first. Even if you are at the bottom of the hierarchy having some things that are personalised according to you and represent your personality, it is easier for you to connect with people. Have you noticed how there is something that always signifies someone’s presence like this is his bottle or do return her pencils, she is very particular about it? Well, something like that could get you enough attention.
For this, there are a few things that you can have, including a tumbler, a custom keychain better if it is customised with your name picture or favourite quote or a mission on it. If not this, you can go for a calendar that is in fact, a must-have that shows authority, responsibility and also keeps you up to date with your timelines and deadlines. Watch is another thing that you should have, which shows your punctuality and your determination. It does not exactly come in the list of things that you need to buy, but you must have on the first day of your office.
- To show aesthetic
To show an aesthetic look to your presence in the office, there are a few things that you should have and apart from their beautifying qualities they should also be of some use be it official spiritual or personal. The first and the most important thing to have if you have a cabin or so in your office is a planter which gives you good thoughts and Vibes. Next, you may have a photo frame on your desk with your picture or your family’s picture or maybe your pet. Apart from this, there are a few things that you should get customised to give the perfect vibe to other colleagues. These things include customised pens, diaries, keychains, mobile covers, visiting cards. On the top of mind these are the few things that help you create a persona in your office and if you can think of some more that you think will maximise your personality do have them with you on the first day first for the first impression is the last impression.
- To show the presentation
And the last thing is to look presentable on the first day itself people judge you not by your look but by the way you walk in the way you present yourself on the first day itself it’s how people remember you till the end of your time in the office. To look presentable and to look accountable for what you do you may want to buy a few dresses, pants, shirt suits, heels, shoe boots and other things that make a collective look and make you look superior not in terms of your status but in terms of your work. You may as well buy accessories that make you look much beautiful. Not everything is about being professional, and the touch of personalisation never causes any harm.
