It’s your first day, remember it’s also the first impression that you are going to create in front of your employer. Reporting late to the office displays your casual and careless approach to work. Avoid being late at work, make sure you reach office 15 minutes before the scheduled time.
Fiddling with your phone:
We all check our phones all the time. Spend time on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and now a days bit more time on Tinder: P .It’s time to be professional guys!
