领导力

第一天上班之前,你需要做些什么

Gina Argento 2017年05月10日

给同事留下深刻印象的,归根结底还是新人的个性和适应能力。

领导力内部网络是一个在线社区,商界最具思想和影响力的人士会在这里及时回答关于职业生涯和领导力的问题。今天的问题是:怎样在职场上留下良好的第一印象?回答者是Broadway Stages的总裁和首席执行官吉娜·阿尔真托。

新入职场的年轻员工可能会不知所措。在通过面试环节获得工作后,他们会疑惑怎样才能留下正面的第一印象。社群清洗、得体着装、彬彬有礼,并准备好你的自我介绍,这都是很好的开始,也是贯穿职业生涯的重要准则。不过对我来说,给同事留下深刻印象的,归根结底还是新人的个性和适应能力。尤其是在招聘时,我会问自己:“这个人能否理解我们的办公室文化,尽快适应工作?”

每个公司的工作环境、着装风格、办公室环境和愿景和不一样。例如,我的公司Broadway Stages是一家专注慈善的快节奏公司。我们寻找的是那些能够迅速理解和适应公司文化的员工。我们也希望他们把同事当作家人看待。

迅速适应新的办公室文化是关键。它很重要,所以我会经常问求职者,他们能够多好地融入新的工作环境。

那么应该怎样迅速适应办公室文化?其中一种方式就是在进入公司后,尽可能清楚地理解你要扮演的新角色。你可以在入职前就对岗位进行摸底。类似Glassdoor这样的网站,以及公司官网,都可以让你大体了解对于这个岗位的要求。如果对于自己的职责还有其他问题,你还可以与人力资源部或直接主管联系。第一天上班时,你应该已经尽量了解了自己要做什么,以及关于公司、新同事和工作的情形。此外,了解谁是谁,可以帮助你在入职后记住名字和头衔。

留下良好第一印象的另一个办法,是早点来,和其他人一起走。随着时间的推移,你会知道大家通常什么时候来,什么时候走,除非公司希望你加班。迟到早退绝对不是个好选择。关注公司里如何交流也很重要:人们主要是通过面谈,还是发邮件或消息?在任何公司里,选择合适的交流方式都是重要的技能。

快速适应的最直接的方式,可能是成为一个团队成员。你可以热情主动地承担工作,不要诽谤公司,积极倾听,公开交流。Broadway Stages最近于布鲁克林在下班时间举办了一场慈善活动。即使如此,也有许多员工希望和我一起参加。我很高兴他们愿意加班。如果某个新员工也加入进来,我的印象会更加深刻。

我最后的建议是:放轻松!你已经通过了艰难的选拔环节,得到了工作。很可能在得到工作的同时,你就已经留下了良好的第一印象。所以只需要继续选拔时的表现,利用自身的团队精神适应公司,若是不善于团队配合就努力去学会,这样就可以了。(财富中文网)

The Leadership Insiders network is an online community where the most thoughtful and influential people in business contribute answers to timely questions about careers and leadership. Today’s answer to the question, “How do you make a great first impression at work?” is written by Gina Argento, president and CEO of Broadway Stages.

As young professionals enter the workforce, they may feel overwhelmed. After the interview process and landing that job, they wonder how they can make a positive first impression. Social cleansing, wearing appropriate clothing, being polite, and preparing your story are all a good start, and important throughout your career. To me, though, impressing your new colleagues comes down to new hires’ personalities and adaptation skills. Specifically, when hiring, I ask myself, “Will this person understand our office culture and learn to fit in as quickly as possible?”

Every workplace has a different environment, with different dress codes, different office relationships, and different outlooks. For example, my company, Broadway Stages, is fast-paced and philanthropy-focused. We look for individuals who are able to understand corporate culture quickly and adapt. We also expect them to treat their coworkers like family.

Being able to adapt to a new office culture quickly is key. It’s so important that I will often ask interviewees how well they can blend into new work environments.

So how do you adapt to office culture quickly? One way is to have as clear of an understanding of your new role as possible going in. You can do this by thoroughly researching the role before your first day. Sites like Glassdoor and looking over your company’s website can help give you a general understanding of what to expect of your position. If you have any additional questions about your responsibilities, you can speak to human resources or your direct supervisor. By your first day, you should already know as much as you possibly can about what you will be doing, the company, your new coworkers, and what it will be like to work there. Also, being knowledgeable about who’s who going in will help you remember names and titles once you’re there.

Another way of making a great first impression is arriving early and leaving at the same time as everyone else. Over time you’ll learn when people usually come and go, and if you will be expected to work overtime. It’s never a good idea to arrive late or leave early. It is also important to pay attention to how people communicate there: Is it mostly face-to-face, or over email or a messaging service? Communicating in the right way is a vital skill for succeeding at any company.

Probably the most straightforward way of adapting quickly is to be a team player. You can enthusiastically volunteer to do jobs, never badmouth the company, listen actively, and communicate openly. Broadway Stages recently hosted a charity event in Brooklyn that ran after work hours. Even so, many employees wanted to join me at the event. I was overjoyed that they were willing to go the extra mile. If a new employee were to do that, I would be even more impressed.

My final piece of advice: Don’t stress! You’ve already gone through the hard part and landed the job. The chances are that if you were offered the job, then you have already made a great first impression. Now just stick the landing and learn to adapt by utilizing the team player characteristics that you already have or learning them if you don’t.
