To make the most of the first few days at a new job position, you need to think strategically. By thinking strategically, you can ensure your success from day one. Here are some tips to help you get started:
Using your free time
You can use your free time to advance your career, build alliances with key co-workers, and even earn raises. If you use this time well, your boss will take notice of your work and reward you accordingly. Otherwise, it will simply create excuses to miss work and make you disinterested in your position. In fact, career experts recommend that you spend your free time improving your skills, mindset, and network.
Believing in yourself
Everyone has rocky periods in their life, but when you believe in yourself, you’ll be able to meet those difficult phases with positive fortitude. You’ll push through tough times and emerge stronger, smarter, and more confident. Remember those moments when you really questioned your abilities, and remind yourself of them often. You’ll feel more confident and more prepared to face the next challenges.
The first step in believing in yourself is to set yourself some goals and achieve them. Achieving goals and completing them will give you a boost of confidence. As you continue to do this, you’ll be able to perform like a champ at your new job position. Try reading Tony Robbins’ Limiting Beliefs Guide. It’s a great self-coaching resource.
Making a good impression
When you are a new employee, try to create a good executive presence. Be polite and pro-active, help others and take calculated risks to innovate
Whether you’re starting your career from scratch or moving up to a new role, making a positive first impression in your new job position is important. What you wear and how you present yourself can impact the respect you’ll receive and the credibility you’ll project. Use these tips to make the best first impression possible. You’ll be able to impress everyone you meet, from your superiors to your coworkers.
Being a rookie can be daunting, but it’s also an exciting time. Being yourself, and displaying enthusiasm, is the best way to make a good first impression. Whether you’re new to the company or have been working for it for years, it’s important to present yourself as your true self, not a cynical and aloof character. Be punctual, especially in the morning and for all meetings and training sessions. Leaving work late or showing up late will give the impression that you don’t take the position seriously.
Introducing yourself in the first few days of a new job
During the first few days at a new job, it is important to introduce yourself to coworkers. Seniors can help you introduce yourself, but you should also do it on your own. Most first introductions will happen during orientation.
Introduce yourself to those who will be working with you throughout the day, and to those who aren’t yet colleagues. This way, they will be more likely to see you and take you seriously as an employee.
Introduce yourself in a friendly manner. Remember the company’s style and your personal style. Include your name, your new job title, and any previous work experience. Many companies provide organization charts and seating plans for new employees. You may also want to bring some snacks to coworkers, being nice, while you’re introducing yourself. Finally, smile.
According to one study, if new employees are adequately on boarded into their new roles, they are 58% more likely to stay with the organization for at least 3 years. Onboarding new employees properly help to increase employee engagement and proves that the employer is committed to their success.
Proper onboarding can also help prevent employee turnover by improving morale and demonstrating company commitment to the success of new employees. Additionally, underpaying your new hires can result in a higher rate of employee turnover. To counter this, employers should offer competitive salaries to retain their new employees.
