Got that dream job and have your first day at work? Congratulations! Here are some Dos and Don’ts to make a great first impression.
When one talks about work – there are two days that are very critical – the day that you join an organization and the day that you leave one. This of course does not mean that the days in between are not – they are. But the first and last days are make-or-break days for your career. The things that happen, your reaction to them, and how you handle the ‘first hellos’ and ‘last goodbyes’ have a lasting effect on your career both within and outside the company, for many years to come.
In this article we’ll address the things that you must do and must not do on your first day at work to make a lasting positive impression on your new colleagues.
We know it’s a long list and some may find it difficult to follow all the Dos and Don’ts. If you realize you’ve made an error – be prompt to apologize and make amends. First days can be difficult, but if you follow the guidelines and let your good common sense rule – they’re not rocket science.
If you have any funny or scary first day stories share it with the community – let others learn from your bloopers or follow your good common sense.

Anyone who knows about Neena Gupta’s backstory would say that she is a boss lady, a badass woman, and the very definition of a feminist. I would agree with them all.
However, after all these decades of her working in the Indian film industry, is her boldness and bravery the only things worth appreciating?
The second season of Masaba Masaba (2020-2022) made me feel as if both Neena Gupta and her daughter Masaba have gotten typecast when it comes to the roles they play on screen. What’s more is that the directors who cast them have stopped putting in any effort to challenge the actors, or to make them deliver their dialogues differently.
Sullu vows to never, ever speak to Renu again. Every time, a Hindi film song extolls the virtues of ‘Dosti’, she feels a tide of anger within her.
Sullu arrives at the duck-pond and seats herself on ‘their’ bench.
Two girls are standing near the edge of the pond. Around seven or eight years old, they are clutching a bag of food in their hands. They call out making cooing sounds.
Sullu knows what will happen next and watches with amusement.
