Does anyone have any strategies for coping with the first few days of a new job? It's exciting and I'm looking forward to it overall, but I find the first few days quite stressful with people being nice to me and all the new things like learning what I'm supposed to be doing!

Anyone got any tips?

Expect that the first day will be the longest day. Expect that the first week will be the longest week. Expect not to remember everyones name. Expect to feel confused and have information overload!

Get early nights. Get your clothes organised for the week. Get your dinners organised for the week. Take your notebook and pen and make loads of notes. Smile a lot.

You'll be just fine!

Organise nothing for the first few weeks
Make sure you haven't got anything aranged at the weekend so you can recover
Make clothes that are comfortable and easy to wash / iron
Make sure you've got good childcare
Time the route so you're there on time
Good luck! I kept telling myself that I was doing fine and if all went well it would be my last first few days in a new job grin
