Guidelines to Follow Now That You Have a New Job
You did it! You landed a new job and you couldn’t be happier. Odds are you’re a somewhat nervous though. Well that’s natural. You want to leave a positive first impression on your new boss and colleagues without making any rookie mistakes.
Here are several “don’ts” to avoid when starting a new job:
- Don’t show up late
- Don’t dress unprofessionally
- Don’t expect hand-holding
- Don’t ask co-workers to do your work
- Don’t take too many personal calls
Once you’ve settled into your new job you shouldn’t stop trying to impress. According to a study from Wynhurst Group, ‘22% of staff turnover happens in the first 45 days of employment’. Make sure you don’t become too complacent, allowing you to become victim of this statistic.
There are several keys to keeping your new job. Be sure you clarify your goals and learn if there is a training system in place for new employees. It doesn’t hurt to be proactive and ask for a review after a few months of working. This shows initiative and that you’re really interested in the company. Building relationships is crucial. Often times you will find yourself having to collaborate with others for projects and having a solid rapport can prove to be beneficial and make the project run smoothly. Just be yourself and show your commitment. The rest will come naturally.
