As you start your new job you are going to be bombarded with information. Finding a way of keeping this information organized will guarantee that you will remain well informed. Taking notes is the best way of doing this. With your handheld or even a pad and pen jot down everything, whether it seems important at the time or not. It may assist you later on. In this article we will be looking at the importance of writing it down, asking questions, and listening.
Write It down. On your first day of the job be prepared to take notes. You will be bombarded with a lot of information so it is important that you have a way of retaining it. Use your handheld or bring a small pad of paper that you can slip into your pocket, along with a pen of course. Remember, you can never take too many notes. Some information may seem arbitrary but note it regardless. You never know if it will prove useful in the future. Remembering your fellow employees’ names and positions will help you to gain favor around the workplace. Everyone likes to feel important. It also won’t hurt your inevitable rise to the top. Taking notes on office equipment you have never used before, or that may have some funny glitches, will also be important. You do not want to annoy your fellow employees by asking them how to use the copy machine again and again, or how many times you’re supposed to push the button on the coffee machine.
