Starting my Big Boy Job

Postby Mr. Colby on Thu Jan 10, 2013 3:47 pm

Monday I am officially no longer a perpetual student and can finally put my 6.5 years of schooling and hundreds of thousands of dollars to good use...

Any advice on this new endeavor from my fellow LGP posters would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,,,

Don't choke like your fantasy baseball team did on the final day of the season.

Good luck!

Blow your first paycheck on something you really want, because you will be paying bills for the rest of your life with the rest of them.

starting a new job is a lot of pressure, at this point, I'd think twice about showing up monday. Did they give you sick days?

Be ethical at all times, because you may run into some pressure to be unethical. The organization will disavow you. Don't be afraid to blow the whistle or walk if you have to. Have the FBI's and SEC's phone numbers in your contact list. Accept the fact that you may need to go into witness protection.

And have fun!

Don't eat anyone else's lunch out of the fridge. That is a big no no.

Especially Lean Cuisines. Postholiday, resolution-fulfilling lunch staples.

There's going to be a group of people that go to the bar after work almost every day. Get to know these people.

For real: Any email you send over the company's network, even if it's from your personal email account, belongs to the company.

Be quiet and observe for the first couple of weeks to get a read on the culture of the place.

If you're working in a rival sports town, then I'd avoid talking about sports, too. :lol:
