Settling Into New Construction Employment

By: Corinne Dauncey

When you have secured new construction employment, you may be nervous and a little uncertain about starting the new role. In which case, here are some handy hints to help you.

Before the start date, do some research. Find out as much as you can about the role, the company and the people from information they may have provided you, the Internet and their website. Ask what you are required to wear before turning up in inappropriate dress.

Once you have started the construction work, make sure at the initial stages you ease yourself into the company smoothly. Introduce yourself people in the company, work out what everyone is responsible for and who you must report to for various aspects of the job. Finally, establish the best mode of communication e.g. emails or telephones etc in the company.

Then work out and understand what boundaries you have and what benchmarks you should be working towards. Make sure this is very clear to you and if you are unsure ask your construction manager. Understand what is expected of you and what resources you have to work with.

Finally, remain positive throughout the whole process as you want to make a good first impression. Do not bad mouth your previous company or people you used to work with and keep criticism and complaints to a minimum.

By taking these useful tips into consideration you should settle into your new construction employment nicely.
