A new year is upon us as we are about to welcome 2016. For many this is a time to really take a step back and ask themselves if they are happy with their company and their current role.
The sweet relief of landing a job can soon be followed by worry regarding the all important first day. We here at Hiregy have created a handy guide to help you prepare for you first day at your new job.
1. Show up Early
You don't need to camp outside the office the night before like it's Black Friday, but it is important to show up around 15 minutes early on your first day. Know the route you are planning to take and be familiar with the traffic patterns. If you think it's going to take you 30 minutes to get to work on time, leave 45 minutes early.

As the days turned into weeks, and then into months, I started feeling the pressure to find a job. I was soon contacted by a company who said they were very impressed with my resume and thought my skill set would be perfect for their open "advertising/marketing" position. They wanted me to come in the following day for an interview. I had not remembered applying for this job, but wasn't about to turn down an opportunity.
