Tip 2: Use a Calendar Notebook to Help You Get Organized

An abundance of important information—rules, regulations, and procedures— will be thrown at you at the beginning of a new job. The first days are days of adjustment and excitement, so don’t trust yourself to remember everything. Rather, buy an inexpensive calendar notebook or day-to-day organizer and use it to record some of the instructions and hard-to-remember information you get from your supervisor or fellow workers. Jot these data down as they are given to you.

Do not hesitate to take notes when receiving a complex answer to a question involving considerable detail. The notebook itself (if not overused) will create a good impression. It will help show that you are organized, methodical in your approach to learning, and serious about your career. In the evening, use the notebook to review certain facts and procedures. You can also use it to record appointments, ideas, names, and so on.
