    • how to use the office equipment (telephones, printers, copy and fax machines, etc.)
    • how to send and where to receive U.S. and campus mail
    • where to access the NSU directory, which contains phone numbers and email addresses
    • where to access key shared drives
    • job-related training requirements
    • the work environment of your department (e.g., teams, working alone, supervising others)
