What is your advice for new employees at your company? As part of my job, I recruit, train, and manage a fairly large number of college interns – 9 of them currently. I know that I’m constantly giving them advice.
- Take Notes. Don’t rely on remembering everything that was said to you.
- Yes, you should study some of these things. Linux commands, how the operating system works, and more. Those are your homework.
- Show up on time.
- Communicate, regularly, early, and often.
What items do you wish people knew, and followed when they start at your company? If you could drop a bug in someone’s ear, what would it be? I’m planning on taking the ideas you post, and using them for a “new employee handbook”.
