Looking good is very important to make a good first impression, so dressing smartly is must, while being polite and friendly and giving off the right signals are all essential, Adecco said.
New workers should avoid personal phone calls and emails - especially on their first day – and make a list of daily tasks and always try to complete them on time, as this will impress the employer, who may be testing their new recruit.
"Listen to what you are being told and always ask if you don't understand. You will not be expected to know everything on your first day and it is better to be sure of what you are doing rather than risk making mistakes," the organisation advised.
Also, while people will want to come across as hardworking, they need to be careful not to become a "doormat" for people to walk all over.
"You need to be shown respect as well. Say yes to jobs within your description but respectfully question those who seem to be piling work on you unnecessarily," Adecco added.
The final tip is to enjoy the experience, as it is not every day people start a new job, and it should be an exciting time.
