First of all, congratulations on the new job. I have some good news about day one: nobody's expecting much from you. I solicited the opinions of many bosses and the general consensus was that a new employee should show up on time, ready to learn. Put my worries aside. Expectations on day one are very low. I am new, after all. That said, day one makes my first impression. It's the first time i meet people. I am going to experience the company for the first time. One day isn't going to make or break my reputation at a company, but how i handle myself over the first few months matters. There are a few things i will want to keep in mind as i am settling in to my new place of work.
