Video: How To Introduce Yourself To Colleagues
Changing jobs and meeting new colleagues often makes you a little nervous and anxious. Naturally, you will be worried about the idea of what kind of team you are in and what it will be like for you to work in it. To get to know the team as quickly as possible, and leave all worries behind, force events and introduce yourself to colleagues yourself. Location: Location: Of course, when you come to work, you will be introduced to the team by a manager or an employee of the HR department, who are already familiar with you from the interview and have read your questionnaire. As a rule, they will not report any information about you, except for the main milestones of your biography. Therefore, you need to take the initiative yourself and tell your colleagues about yourself, without waiting for their questions.
When introducing yourself, let them know how to contact you. Tell us when and where you were born, what educational institution you graduated from. Please describe a little your work experience and your main achievements. Do not hesitate to mention the available scientific works, publications, inventions. But make sure it doesn't sound like bragging or a challenge.
As a rule, colleagues are always interested in marital status and the presence of children. Tell us briefly about this. But control yourself so that the story about children and a happy marriage does not drag on. Suffice it to say how many years you have been married or married, and how old your children are.
Try to tell your story in a playful, endearing way. With humor, dilute the positive information about yourself that you just listed with a mention of your shortcomings, even if they are imaginary. Make it clear to colleagues that humor and self-irony are not alien to you, and you are not a narcissistic braggart.
Tell us about those habits of yours that they will have to face when working side by side with you: that you cannot quit smoking, for example, or that you prefer green tea over black or coffee. You can mention your hobbies and ask colleagues to stop you in time when you bore them with stories about them.
Apologize in advance if you do not remember who's name, and ask them to provide you with the necessary assistance in quick adaptation to a new enterprise and a new team. Such a speech of yours will remove many questions and will endear your new colleagues to you. And the cake, brought to the next tea party or from the first salary, will finally strengthen your position.
