Tips for First-Time Jobbers

Friday, August 23, 2019

Blue-collar or white, lining up kindergartners for the cafeteria or cars in the sales lot, leading the marketing team or assisting the mailroom manager, first jobs can be scary. Starting with a good night’s sleep and regular exercise, the experts at Sleepletics, the online retailer of Celliant Performance Sheets and Comforters, say there are many things one can do to turn jitters into joy.


Perhaps most important is to remember, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” Take time before your first day on the new job to be sure your first impression is a good one.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK
Hopefully, one reason you got the job was that you checked out the company, learned about its operation and memorized the names of the key players. But if not, do it before Day One. Not only will co-workers think you’re truly interested in the business, but you won’t get caught red-faced, not knowing the basics.

DRESS CODE                                                                     
“Dress for the job you want, not the job you have,” is an old adage that still rings true, even with today’s relaxed office attire. You don’t want to stand out looking too formal or too informal. Choose clothing similar to your boss’s. Whether it’s a button-down shirt and chinos, pantsuit and heels or a sweater and jeans, take their lead, and be sure that whatever you wear is clean, pressed, and in tip-top condition.

SLEEP & EXERCISE
You won’t impress anyone dragging into your new place of business begging for the coffee machine or asking when your first break will be. One way to be sure you’re at your best, ready to focus, listen and ask intelligent questions, is to make your bed with Celliant Performance Sheets, an FDA-determined medical device and general wellness product combining five-star comfort with revolutionary technology designed to promote a healthier, more restful sleep.


These luxurious sateen-weave sheets are made with a blend of premium, long-staple cotton and patented Celliant mineral-infused polyester yarns that reflect your body’s heat back to you as therapeutic infrared light in a natural and safe way.  This increases blood flow to your muscles and improves local circulation, helping you to sleep better and recover faster from physical activity (so you can say “yes” to joining your department’s baseball team and volunteer for that extra assignment).

GIFTS FOR THE FIRST-TIME JOBBER
Family and friends can help ensure success for the first-time jobber with a gift geared to his or her specific needs. Some ideas follow:


Cord keepers for neat desks and A+ work. There’ll be no unprofessional-looking, tangled cords at the office with Cord Tacos from CB2. Handmade of genuine leather, half-moon organizers keep loose cords neat and knot-free. Comes packed in a drawstring bag with two large in metallic gold and saddle, three small in gold, navy, and saddle. Made in the USA. $29.95.

A good night’s sleep taken to the highest level. In addition to the sheets described above, caring parents might like to show their pride in the son or daughter who nailed down a good job by gifting them with Sleepletics new Celliant Performance Comforters. With cold weather soon upon us, they’re just the thing to verify a good, and healthy, night’s sleep.


Made of the same materials as the sheets, the comforters are super-charged with Celliant mineral-infused fibers, as the casing and fill both contain this new infrared textile technology that has been clinically proven and determined by the FDA to be a medical device and general wellness product. They’re also silky smooth, quilted with diamond stitching and wrinkle-resistant (making for a quick getaway come morning). Match the sheets or mix ‘n match, the colors are Chalk, Blue, Tan and Light Grey. Available in Full/Queen and King. Retailing from $199.99.
Frequent hydration is key to first-rate job performance. The S’well Milky Way Water Bottle is sleek with an iridescent finish that is perfect for everyone. It can even be personalized with name or initials. Made from 18/8 food-grade stainless steel with triple-walled, vacuum-insulated construction, designed to keep beverages cold for up to 24 hours or hot for up to 12. A copper wall layer also keeps the exterior condensation-free. BPA-free and reusable. Available in 9 oz.,17 oz. and 25 oz. sizes and a slew of colors, patterned and plain. Starts at $25.


What a fun way to start first-day-on-the-job conversations. This colorful laptop sleeve is from AboutSociety6, which also offers botanical prints, animals, and landscapes among many others.  Constructed of durable, canvas-like polyester with a soft microfiber lining, it sports the bold artwork front and back. Available in 13” ($38.99) and 15” ($39.99) sizes.


Make the smallest cubicle comfortable and win points from your office mate with Vornado’s Flippi V6 Personal Air Circulator, available for $22.99 in Bliss Blue (featured), Black, Coral Blush, and Vintage White. Measures 6.2” H x 5” W x 4.9” D.

Prepare for the first day on the job thoroughly, and the rest of your career will be smooth sailing.
