About Our Site

AFirstJob was formed to offer a unique reference point on advice on getting and starting your first job.

Starting out in the world of work can be a daunting prospect so AFirstJob was set up to provide all the information that is needed to be well prepared and confident. Although there are other sites that offer work advice, we wanted to create a resource that dealt specifically with AFirstJob as the pressures and experiences are very different. From preparing for the first day, to dealing with colleagues and planning career progression, it's all on here.

Our work experts have created a comprehensive collection of articles that can help a new employee to be the best that they can be in their job. As well as general advice there are articles dealing with more specific issues such as creating the right company impression, using a mentor, and adjusting to new hours of work.

All of our resources are written in a clear and engaging way so that people can easily find and understand the information that they need to do well in their first job.Being the new person at work, especially when it is the first step on the career ladder can be overwhelming but with our advice, and a little bit of dedication, it is possible to make a positive start towards a glowing career.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.
