You got the job! Congratulations. We hope you are excited and not too anxious. We also hope that you know the first 90 days of a new job are make or break. Studies show that 20 percent of employment turnover happens within this period. How can you make sure that you will still be employed after these 90 days?
Know what is expected. What is your job position? What is required? What are the expectations? In order to succeed in your new position, you have to be able to answer all of these questions and answer them specifically. The better you know what is required of you, the better you can do your job and impress your employer.
Get to know your coworkers. Make friends. Be yourself. And figure out where you fit in. The last thing you want is to feel uncomfortable at work and hate your job because of it. Trust us, the “new guy” jabs will eventually go away. Meanwhile, remember you were hired for this position and are already part of the team.
Listen. Listening can work miracles for you. Whether it’s when you are getting to know people or while you are doing your training, paying attention and listening the best you can will make a difference on your success in the first 90 days of your new employment.
Go the extra mile. If you were hired with a group of other people it’s important that you try to stand out. Do this by going the extra mile. Take on new tasks and work hard! Your manager will notice. Just make sure that you don’t take on too much and can handle what you have.
Celebrate the small wins. You were hired because your employer believed that you would add value to the company. Do just that! Be confident and work hard. It will pay off.
