What Have I Forgotten?

On your first day, don't forget to ask your supervisor about....
  • Your work schedule;
  • how to request leave; and,
  • how often your performance will be appraised.
In addition, if you have any other questions or concerns regarding your new job, be sure to use this first meeting with your supervisor as an opportunity to discuss those concerns.
