    Is a recently-employed in a firm:

    a newcomer or a freshman?

    Thanks,
    Ewelina

    Re: new

    Hello Ewelina

    I wouldn't expect to hear either word in the context of a new employee: a "freshman" suggests an educational environment, to my ears, while "newcomer" sounds like a new arrival in a non-business context.

    In a business context, I would expect to hear "starter". (You also often hear the somewhat pleonastic "new starter".)
