Your first weeks in a new job. #ThursdayTips


Wondering what to focus on during your first weeks in a new job?

Instead of elaborating on some obvious things such as:

  • Finding a buddy - someone who’s been with the company a while and can support your transition
  • Updating your social media (Linkedin!), setting up your twitter accordingly (follow your company and the industry leaders etc.) 
  • Socialising as much as you can, accepting lunch invitations, talking to as many people as possible (easier to introduce yourself now, when you’re new, rather than in 3 months time)
  • Attending all the training sessions (you’ll get busy quickly and never get back to these if you miss any now).

Let’s discuss the real opportunity that comes with changing a job.

A fresh start.

Ponder your challenges or things you’ve struggled with in the past. Make it a personal goal to address and overcome these in your new environment.

For example, be sure to set the right boundaries within your first weeks. Establish the ways of communication, acceptable response times, approaches to projects and expected working hours with both your boss and direct reports and stick to it.

A fresh mindset in new surroundings is a magical combination that offers a chance to progress!
