If you're starting a new career, this is for YOU.
Or if you're struggling to adapt to your role, read on!
Here's 7 things you need to do in the first 30 days at your new job:
#1: Find out the names of your team members and remember them!
It’s a job… Yes.
But it’s also about people.
We work better with people we get along with.
#2: Schedule a catch-up session with your boss to align expectations.
You’re hired… YAY!
Now the real work begins.
Before you dive in, get clear on what your boss expects of you.
#3: Get access to your company’s key policies and procedures.
Learning on the job? Great!
But going around in circles without an idea of what’s the “standard” will waste your time, effort and focus.
#4: Learn how to do your role the right way.
Now that you have an idea of what’s expected of you…
It’s time to execute and deliver.
You might not get it right immediately, but you’re on your way!
#5: Ask questions about your department, team and role.
The best time to ask about anything is when you’re new.
So, don’t waste this chance.
But make an effort to be resourceful, first. Don’t be an “ask-hole”.
#6: Don’t be too hard on yourself.
You’ve just landed a new career opportunity… Stay calm!
It’s time to focus on learning and proving your capabilities.
Growth will come when you’re ready for the next level.
#7: Be patient - Success takes time.
Every career level requires a new version of you.
Mindset and skillset.
Build a solid foundation so you’ll feel more confident in growing your career (without imposter syndrome).
