    Hi guys,
    I have a new job at Greggs and I will be extremely nervous on the first day. I have done previous voluntary work and made some mistakes working there, but I want to make less mistakes working at this place.
    I'm grateful for this job as I have been unemployed for 12 months, can you give me any tips on how to calm my nerves?

    Just take it as it comes, don't stress yourself with all the things you think you might have to do. Be friendly and ask questions if you have troubles. As you have just started, you won't be expected to be perfect and will make mistakes, but you can learn from them. Have a can-attitude and be friendly to staff and customers, and with time, you will settle in well!

    Keep a positive attitude and don't be afraid to ask for help. Mistakes may (will, in fact) happen but they're not the end of the world.
