No Tricks, Just Treats – Find Confidence in Starting a New Job

October 23rd, 2019

Starting a new job is quite exciting. But it can also be incredibly nerve-wracking. After all, you don’t know anyone at this new company, you don’t know how things are done, you might only have a slight idea about their office culture, and even the office layout is new to you. It’s no surprise that you may feel some new job jitters.

3 Tips to Boost Your Confidence When Starting a New Job

No matter how unsure you may be on your first day, here are some important tips to boost your confidence so you can push fears aside and focus on success.

Relax

Before you enter the new workplace, you need to take a few minutes to relax. Put your body and mind at ease so you don’t come across as short or tense to your new coworkers. Maybe you listen to your favorite music or podcast on the commute. You could wake up extra early to read a book or get in a workout. These are all different ways to help you relax so when you get to your new job, it’s a lot easier to roll your shoulders back, take a deep breath and walk in with a confident smile. 

Remember WHY You’re There

Sometimes the fears and jitters of starting a new job can make you feel completely inadequate to step into your new role. Fight the urge to be unsure of yourself and remember why you are there. You were chosen out of many candidates to perform successfully at this job. It’s important to also remember that your managers don’t expect you to be perfect right away, either. They are looking forward to helping you succeed in this position and they are confident that you will flourish here. 

Another important idea to remember is why you are excited to start this new gig. This job will help propel you in your career. The idea of starting a new job that will help you achieve your goals is extremely motivating.

Normalize New

Starting anything that is new will automatically wire you to be a little bit, or even a lot, nervous. It’s how your brain is wired to respond. So, instead of getting too wrapped up in your new job anxiety and fears, understand that all these new experiences at your new job will quickly pass. The less power and fear you give to things being new, the faster your fears will fade and be replaced with professional confidence.
