Worst/best thing a new TA might do on their first day??

  1. This is my first post in this forum and I am looking for a little bit of advice pretty please! I am currently looking for a TA job, and I just wondered, what things would really annoy you as an experienced TA about a new TA starting? Feel free to include any anecdotes etc. I don't want to sound too eager to please but at the same time I know I'll be so excited to start a new job, and probably really apprehensive too. Or, what practical suggestions would you have for a new TA to start a job the best possible way? Thanks.
  2. There is very little that could annoy me about a new TA starting a job as I would always want to be supportive to a new colleague.
    The trickier part is getting the job in the first place. Good luck with that.

  3. Oh well done and good luck with your interview.
    There is a 'Interview Questions' thread lurking somewhere on the TA forums that may be of help.
