Team Work On The Job

Besides throwing your hands in the air and living in regret, there are a few steps you can take to make your situation more bearable.

1.Take Initiative

2.Introduce yourself to a member of your team. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

3. Inform your team members that you will be asking questions and seeking their assistance until you're up to speed.

4. Take copious notes. No matter how computer proficient you are, every system is different.

5. Don't be afraid to adjust your learning style. Remember you're not school. Once you leave the classroom, pedagogy is out the window. Your employer's main concern is the completion of tasks that enhances their bottom line.

These four simple steps should help ease your frustration and increase your learning quotient. In time you will fill like a full fledged capable team member. The experience will make you wiser, stronger and more competent.
