First impressions matter a lot, particularly on your first day at a new job, and they typically dictate how other people will perceive you going forward.
Being on time and looking nice, introducing yourself to your new colleagues, and setting up a one-on-one meeting with your boss are some of the fundamental things you can do to establish a strong first impression.
Our best advice is to be prepared, which necessitates extensive planning!
Do your research about the company to ensure that you are prepared. This could involve looking at the company website, using social media, researching competing businesses, finding your co-workers on LinkedIn, or even experimenting with the software your company uses. The best course of action is to ask your company for an employee handbook or induction before your start date. You'll be able to learn more about the company and get any questions ready in advance.
