You went through the interview process and your interview preparation paid off in the form of a job offer. You are proud and excited and cannot wait to start your first day. You have some time to get ready for your first day, so there are some tasks you should take care of that will make your first day a lot easier.

1. Get some work clothes

The interviewer who offered you the job gave you the full rundown on what kind of attire you are expected to wear and you realise that you have none of it in your closet. It is time to go shopping and be prepared for your first day on the job. If you are short on cash, then get to the thrift stores in your area and pick up the work clothes you need at low prices. Whether you prefer to buy brand new clothes or slightly worn, then pick up at least three outfits.

2. Check your list of necessary supplies

Some jobs, such as jobs in the medical profession, require you to bring in some of your own equipment to do your job. This is not unusual, but you will want to check your list of necessary equipment to make sure that you are prepared for your first day. Give yourself plenty of time to get the items you need, especially if you have to order anything that will take time to ship.

3. Learn about the company

Now that you have the job, you can spend some time on the company website and really get to know the organisation. Your employee orientation class will give you the full rundown on what you need to know about the company, but you will feel more confident if you go into your first day with a little background information of your own.

4. Make any child care preparations

One important detail to take care of well in advance of your first day is any child care needs your children will have while you are at work. If you cannot get a daycare facility lined up in time, then get a relative or hire a babysitter to make sure that your children are safe while you are working.

5. Get your car looked over

The last thing you need is to be driving to your first day of work and have your car die because of something that could have been prevented. You should get your car looked over by a certified mechanic before that first day to make sure the vehicle is ready to go. To help make sure that you have all contingencies covered, you should also have someone on stand-by to give you a ride and take care of your car in case something does happen on the way to work.
