Half a century ago on the 20th July 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon, which is a pretty big deal. Landing on the moon might not be immediately comparable to your first day in a new job, but there’s more similarities than you might think.
From the preparation stage, to the countdown and those first steps onto unknown land, there’s a lot to learn from Mr. Armstrong’s ascent into the unchartered, otherworldly ground of the Moon (or in your case, a new job).
Spacesuits and rockets: Keeping safe and looking the part
When heading into a new job, it is important that you wear the most appropriate attire, whether that is for safety purposes or simply to look the part. Much like Neil Armstrong had to be protected in his spacesuit, a food operative may need to wear a hair net and on a construction site you’d need the appropriate safety gear.
3…2…1…Countdown: Preparing to launch into your new career
In the lead up to starting your new job, there are various ways you can ensure that you have the best start possible. Proman employees all undergo a site tour, introduction and induction, which means that you are always well-prepared for your new role.
One giant leap: Taking those first few steps in your new role
The first few days in any job are crucial in creating a positive and lasting first impression. Ensure you are punctual, complete tasks on time and present yourself in a positive manner. Each small step towards creating a good first impression can translate into a giant leap towards success!
Reach for the stars: Fulfilling your potential as a new employee
Joining a new workforce is an excellent time to learn new things and meet new people, don’t be afraid to aim for the stars and reach your full potential. At Proman, we encourage training and continuing learning in the workplace through apprenticeships to ensure that you keep reaching for the stars.
The view from above: Being mindful of your successes and reflecting
The key to success is consistent improvement, which can be achieved through reflecting on where you have done well and where you may do better. After your first week, month, quarter and so on in the role, take some time to reflect on where you’re at and where you want to be.
