Waiting is the worst, isn’t it? When was the last time you were in a hospital, either because you were sick or you were helping someone else? Things take forever in a hospital. Waiting for tests. Waiting for test results. Waiting to be discharged. How about traveling in the airport? Waiting in line for security. Waiting for your plane to board. Waiting to take off. Waiting to get off the plane ... and that’s all if your flight goes smoothly! Or, how about waiting in line at the DMV?

Finding and starting a new job is often a stressful and emotional experience. It ranks up there with buying a new house or getting married. For many that first day on the job is anxiety ridden and full of uncertainty. How an employee feels on that first day can make or break the employee/employer relationship and could very well determine the longevity of the new hire.
