Hello, I'm Charles Galbreath, workforce empowerment speaker and human resource professional. Today, I'm going to share with you some tips for how to deal with apprehension when starting a new job. Starting a new job can be a very exciting experience but it can also bring up a lot of nerves. It's a new experience, a new opportunity. You'll be meeting new people and new tasks. And so any change that big can have an affect on you. So it's very important for you to first of all remember the strength that you have in approaching that situation. Remembering that you are intelligent. Remembering that you have experience and that you have qualities that will help you connect with these new people. That's the first thing that's very important when starting a new job. Second of all, learn the rules of the land. It's very important that you familiarize yourself with the policy, the procedure, and the rules of this new job that you have. The more familiar you are with those aspects the less apprehension you will have because you are knowledgeable. And of course knowledge is power in those situations. It's very important for you to connect immediately with people. Meet people, introduce yourself. Share with you, share with them stories that you have about your old job and how excited you are about your knew job. The more people you connect with the more comfortable you will be in that new situation. So again, it's very important that you remember the strength that you have in approaching this new job and use that strength to connect and belong in this new environment.
