Congratulations on your new job!
Are you feeling excited and nervous at the same time?
Normal lang ‘yan!
But then, keep in mind that the first 90 days in your job will be the most crucial time.
According to Michael D. Watkins in an interview conducted by LearnVest as cited in an article How to Ace Your New Job in the First 90 Days by Forbes, this is where “Your colleagues and your boss form opinions about you based on limited information, and those opinions are sticky—it’s hard to change their minds. So shape their impressions of you to the best of your ability.”
To help you during this transitional period, here are 5 tips.
- Maging observant.
It’s good to familiarize yourself sa mga organizational structures and documents ng company.
Sabi ni Eli Howayeck in an article How to Settle in at a New Job written by Jillian Kramer of Glassdoor, mag observe and makinig ka rin how your leaders, managers, and colleagues interact and pay attention to their interpersonal dynamics.
- Learn the basics of the company.
After mo mag observe, pag aralan how the business works, the processes, and its systems.
According to Linda Raynier in her teaching video entitled Workplace Environment (How to Adapt to a New One), makaka-help ito to perform better at work with fewer mishaps.
Para mas lumawak pa ang kaalaman mo, don’t be afraid to ask questions kung may mga bagay ka na hindi maintindihan. Okay?
- Makipag-interact sa mga colleagues mo.
Siyempre don’t forget to establish good rapport.
It may be uncomfortable at first but make an effort para makilala ang mga co-workers mo, says Alison Green of U.S. News & World Report in her article How to Adjust to a New Job.
Introduce yourself first kasi they will be the same people din naman who will assist, advice, and guide you through the next years of your stay in the company.
- Galingan mo! Ipakita mo what you’re capable of.
Set the tone right off the bat by making a good 1st impression.
“aspire to make at least 3 significant contributions to [his or her] team early on to establish credibility and create momentum for future success,” Joseph Liu, career consultant, explained in the same article by Kramer.
Ipakita mo what you can bring to the table by consistently submitting high quality work and demonstrating strong work ethic.
- Maging totoo ka lang. Be yourself.
“Approach the people you meet with the sense of authenticity and being genuine in terms of showcasing who you are,” says Raynier in her other teaching video How to Make a Good First Impression on the Job – 6 Tips.
Don’t lose the real you. Stay true to yourself and people will accept and appreciate that.
Bonus advice: Not everything will turn out perfectly and according to your plan.
Every now and then, you will experience defeat, face insecurities, and overcome self-doubt especially in your adjusting period.
