Answer

It can be a bit scary jumping into a new job and learning to work with new colleagues. Here are a few  tips that might make it easier:

  • Treat your co-workers the same way you’d like to be treated. Treat them with respect, regardless of gender, abilities or position in the company.
  • Stay away from the office gossip.
  • When someone gives you feedback that aims to make your work better, accept it professionally and take responsibility for your mistakes.
  • Be a team player and help when needed.
