You’ve put in the hard work and landed your dream job (or a job on the way to your dreams!). Take a moment to breathe, smile and congratulate yourself.
Then shift back into motion to keep the momentum of success going. Because even though you got the job, your first day and first few months at your new workplace are your chance to build the best foundation toward a solid team environment, career, and future.
Here are 7 ways you can start building your future, starting from day one.
Your progress and success is about more than simply getting work done. Companies are built on cultures. Knowing how you’re fitting in with the team and culture, or what you can do to integrate smoothly is vital to long-term success. Be sure that you prepare yourself for the hard truth too. Your boss will likely not mince words, as he or she has an entire company to think about. So make sure you’re ready to hear and accept if they share something that needs to change.
Following up your meeting with a thank you note and creating your personal plan for incorporating the feedback is a great way to complete your first 90 days and take a positive step toward you future.
