New at NTNU
Welcome meeting: Your new supervisor will meet with you on your first day of work to give you a quick overview of the organization and your work assignments. You will then arrange for an introductory meeting where you will discuss what will be expected of you in your new role, and what kinds of job-related training you need to get started.
Follow-up meeting: You should have a follow-up meeting with your supervisor over the course of the next 2-5 months to discuss how you have fared during your first few months on the job. You should also discuss your overall work situation and if there are things or work assignments that you would like to change in the future.
PS! Make sure to activate your user account as soon as possible. This grants you access to NTNU's IT systems.

PC and software
Here's what you need to get started
Activate user account
Activate your user account to get access to e-mail, software, intranet, Paga (NTNU's payroll system) etc.
You can also use a mobile phone instead of a land-line phone. Mobile phones and mobile subscriptions.
If you need equipment or other tools to do your job, read here about ordering procedures. Talk to your mentor to find out more about how work-related gear, supplies or tools are ordered in your office or group.
Health and safety (HSE)
All divisions or groups have a safety representative whose responsibility is to make certain that employees work in a safe, productive environment. This concerns everything from indoor air quality to the working environment and handling of chemicals.
If you are going to work in a laboratory or workshop, you must become familiar with HSE practices and routines.
If you are going to work with dangerous chemicals or biological materials, check with your supervisor to see if you should be vaccinated and be given a medical examination.
