We want you to enjoy your first day on the job, so we've created this checklist to help you prepare.
By completing some of these tasks beforehand, you can spend a little more time meeting people on your first day at MIT.
Within your first three days of employment, the federal government requires that you submit the Employment Eligibility and Verification form—Form I-9. It's easy to do. Just get the form on this web page, fill it out, and present it to your supervisor with your ID. Acceptable forms of ID are described on the form.
It's a good idea to confirm your arrival time, get parking and transportation tips, and check to see if there's anything you should bring with you on your first day of work.
Our multimedia overview describing faculty and staff benefits will bring you up to speed quickly.
You will find MIT's Information Services & Technology (IS&T) to be an important resource, so visit their site and get comfortable with what they have to offer. This is also a good time to set up your e-mail account, unless your department plans to do it for you–some departments handle this, some don't. If you find that this is your responsibility, the IS&T "Getting Your Electronic Credentials" page will guide you through.
