My first day, my mind was reeling. I didn't want to make any mistakes. I was worried I wouldn't be able to do the job. All of these are common and valid reactions to the first day of employment. But, as this video illustrates, a new hire's nervousness and uncertainty can be the flipside of excitement, ambition, and an eagerness to learn the ins and outs of the company. Topics include the typical paperwork of the first day, such as tax and health insurance forms; the need to completely understand the employer's policies on vacation, sick time, retirement funds, and other benefits; and the equally important need to grasp legal concepts of employee rights, sexual harassment, and workplace safety. Pointers on navigating office politics, respecting the chain of command, asking for a raise, and staying alert for new opportunities are also included.

A Cambridge Educational Production.
