The night before my first day at WGRZ-TV, I was freaking out because I had no idea what to wear for work. Not to be like a total girl, but I was concerned because they had told me earlier that I may go out to help shoot interviews outside. I wanted to be professional, but warm! My roommate asked me why I didn’t just ask about their dress code in advance. I thought it would make me look stupid, honestly, but now I was upset I didn’t. I feel like a lot of people get caught in this situation before starting a new job but we just don’t talk about it, cause it seems silly. But truthfully, when I sat down with my supervisor on the first day and asked him, he said it was a great question and he’s happy I asked. He simply said he would tell me in advance if I’ll be sent outside to film. Something that seemed so silly, but I was so scared to ask, turned out to be a simple answer. Moral of the story, no matter how stupid you may think your questions are, just ask.
