When you start at a new job befriending co-workers can be intimidating. A majority of bonds have already been formed and you’re either sitting on the edge of newbie and “are you cool enough?” Let’s be honest, high school never ends.
Most of your energy should be spent proving yourself to your new boss but spending time on making friends isn’t against the rules. Just make sure to use your time wisely by befriending the following:
1. The Face
The receptionist is the first and last person you see. Chances are she is the eyes and ears of the company, relaying all that she sees and hears to your boss. Take a step in the right direction and befriend the receptionist.
2. Signed Sealed Delivered
The person who is in charge of messengers, mail, packages, and items that are time sensitive and important should be part of your fave five.
3. Early Bird Special
The seniors and authoritative figures in the company are great to bond with as mentors and windows into the company. Begin to form strong relationships with these people in the early stages of your career in hopes of creating a strong support system.
You won’t always be the new person and as my grandmother always said, “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”
5. Learn From The Intern
Your interns are not slaves. (As some of us soon forget once there are two extra hands around.) Interns are there to learn, gain experience, and soak up all the knowledge you have to offer. Interns are usually younger with a better grasp on things like social media and any and all hot topics. Learn from your intern. Treat them well because you never know when you will cross paths again. It is a small world, after all.
It’s not easy starting a new job and it’s hard to find a tight support group in an unfamiliar work environment. Follow these steps to a smooth initiation. Good luck!

“Let’s not kid ourselves: Finding a job is no picnic. Whether you are a new grad or a seasoned pro primed for a change, it takes time and commitment to land the right opportunity. Even though you’ve worked hard to get where you are today, finding that dream job can be a nightmare. Pounding the pavement is the pits.
