Don't say sorry unless you mean (women tend to over do this)
Don't burn bridges
Be nice to everybody, that cleaner might be your boss one day

Congrats and good luck

-Taking orders is apart of the job. Don't be one of those people that can't handle instruction.
-Get to know people. Your next opportunity could come from the folks you see everyday.
-Don't take out your personal frustrations on people. Leave your problems at home.
-Continue to update your resume and learn all you can while there and become certified in something.
-Don't get too comfortable.
-Keep looking at other jobs. Most young people get tired of a job after 9 months to a year. Also you never know what could happen. Just don't get outta that job/opportunity hunt groove ever. Hard to get back in it.
-Stand up for yourself if need be.
-Smile at people.
-Have fun :-)

when dressing for a job, always dress conservatively. know that dress code inside and out.

network.

look for a mentor. their advice can be invaluable.

i would observe people before really talking...you can learn a lot about your coworkers by observing them. then you will know the best way to deal with them.

don't get too personal to any coworkers

don't get drunk around coworkers.

This is so true. I used to wonder why people stay in a certain position and complain about it for so long! But then I realized that it's because they are too comfortable to leave and explore the unknown. It's good to spend at least a year or 2 in the same job(unless its a horrible place) before you move on. I get bored in my job but i don't want to job hop either. It's the second job I've had that lasted about a year.
