So you just landed one of the coveted, sought after jobs in South Florida – congrats! While the job search and interview process are over, there is still work to be done in your first 90 days of employment. With many companies having a mandatory 90 day probation period (to test you out), this is your time to prove yourself, and your time to shine! Follow our four simple tips below to get you off on the right foot, from day one!
Introduce Yourself to People. Your first few months should be spent getting to know your co-workers and management team. If you want to make a great first impression, try introducing yourself at the watercooler or using the on-site facilities such as the gym to meet new people.
Be Proactive. Develop a routine from day one and offer to jump in and help anywhere you can. Your new co-workers will love to see you take initiative, and so will your new boss! Take notes when possible, and don’t wait for someone to tell you what to do. Pay attention and don’t hesitate to ask questions.
Understand Organizational Structure. Try to understand the larger picture of your organization. You should know who your team is and who you report to, but take it one step closer by researching your leadership team, and if possible, reach out to them to introduce yourself. You will be surprised, some might even entertain a lunch with “the new guy!”
Show How You Can Be Dependable. In addition to being proactive, reach out and ask where you can help – and follow that through. It will speak volumes in your first few months if you can help your team be more productive.
