As a new employee, you’ll encounter new people, a new work environment and a new set of responsibilities. Also there’s a lot of uncertainty when it comes to a new job and new team.
Read these tips to survive in you new job:
The first week of a new job
- In the first week, it is all about keeping a balance.
- Do not try to impose things instantly and shouldn’t put too much pressure on yourself to get everything right.
- The first goal of this week is to learn about your new workplace, team mates and feel out your place in that ecosystem.
- Show your enthusiasm to shine through.
- So find the right timing and give a quick, energetic introduction to the people you don’t know yet.
In the first month
- Now that you have an idea about the workplace, try to know your team better because it’s important to continue making new connections.
- Try to be attentive and observe how everyone works and collaborates.
- Ensure that you gain all the valuable insights about the company and group culture.
- Get organised, be punctual, learn to manage time and set good habits.
- During the first few weeks, talk to your manager and clarify your mutual expectations.
In the first 90 days
- Take challenges and set ambitious goals for yourself.
- Try to work towards your goals by diving into situations that support them and continually repeat this process for better results.
- Set boundaries. You may have spent the first month of your new job compromising on some of your boundaries.
- Set up a three-month review with your manager as in some organisations, a 90-day review for new employees is a common practice.
