24 Jun HOW TO SMASH YOUR NEW JOB
You’re the new kid on the block. You need to impress and show some mettle in your. How can you smash your new job before you’ve even started then?
No worries! We have the dope right here for you.
KNOW THE COMPANY INSIDE OUT
From when they started, why they started, who the big dogs are, who the juniors are, know their products and services backwards, and any other key features and unique elements that make them who they are.
LEARN WHAT YOU CAN ABOUT YOUR NEW TEAM
This may require some trolling on your part to see who the key players are in the company, what their background is, what their values are (often professionals divulge this via their LinkedIn profile and posts that they send out) and also see who you will be working with, so that you can learn how to fit in quickly at your new job.
HAVE A PLAN OF ACTION AND FOLLOW THROUGH WITH IT
You know what your job entails – you should know this! So, have a plan of action. You may not know the exact project details or what clients you will deal with, but you know what your job description requires. Put together a matrix of strategies that will help you achieve your goals within the company. Believe us, it will impress!
HAVE A LIST OF QUESTIONS READY
No one expects you to understand and know everything, so be ready to ask questions about your new job. People who are placed in a position of authority can be very helpful. Show them that you are wiling to learn and are open to suggestion too.
Your new job can feel like an old job even after the first day – good luck!
