Dress up and arrive early to make a good impression on the first day of a new job, career coach Miriam Salpeter advises. Develop an elevator speech to use during introductions to coworkers, be positive and remember names, she writes. Also, be prepared to stay late. "It can't hurt to stay a little beyond your designated hours so that everyone sees that you're more interested in getting the job done and less interested in running for the door," Salpeter suggests.
