Of great importance is the shoes. Even the most expensive and stylish suit will not look if you wear old broken shoes.

If the company is allowed free style clothing – is better not to come to a T-shirt and jeans, torn according to the latest fashion trends. It’s still work!

Do not be late!


Late for work – it is generally a bad taste and a huge minus, but late in the first day – this can only afford a chronic loser. Or the daughter of a millionaire.

Flirt – is, of course, very cute and nice, but stop trying to find a life partner for another time and place. At least in the first months of the new job.

Personal let remain personal

Do not rush to the first day to share with these cute and friendly colleagues peculiarities of his personal life, marital status and financial status. This information can easily be used against you – no one knows if there are any hidden among those present your competitor who is willing to resort to illegal methods. And indeed, to devote all the others in his personal life – at least bad manners.
