NEW EMPLOYEE   新入社員、新人


  • A new employee is someone who has recently started working at a company or other organization.

    Be Careful! Although the expression new employee can be used to talk about an employee who has just graduated from college (= 新入社員), it can also be used more generally to talk about any employee who is new to an organization.
  • new employee は、最近、企業や組織で働き始めたばかりの人、つまり、新入社員のことです。

    注意:new employee は、大学を卒業したばかりの新入社員だけでなく、もっと広い意味で、新しく会社に入ってきた人のこともさします。
