It can be hard to trust someone you barely know with your business, your money, data, documents etc. Of course you have to gain the trust of your employer over time but it is possible to show you are a person who is likely to be able to do so.
Polite but frank – that is the ideal for every boss. Communicate and talk to people openly, never lie to them and you are on your way to success.
This is a hard one to find in people these days. It seems everybody knows everything and everyone, has been everywhere and has so many talents. Be humble and you will stand out.
- Ability to learn quickly
Pay attention to what you are learning in your workplace and really try to memorize (or write down) everything they tell you. You will be more useful and show your interest in the job at the same time.
You know (and maybe have this even in your contract) you shouldn’t talk about certain things you come to know in your work. Moreover you never should talk about personal stuff your boss tells you.
It is very hard to balance your humbleness and your confidence. Most of us are not able to do that. But you can try because your boss definitely doesn’t need a person who looks like he/she doesn’t know what they are doing.
Once you start working for someone, you are expected to be loyal. That means standing behind your employer and not constantly looking for something better (and even worse, talk about it everywhere you go).
