I’m here to spill all the secrets on how you can make a solid + fabulous first impression at your new job!
In this week’s episode, I’ll recount a humorous anecdote about one of my most unforgettable first days. Hint, it has to do with keys and a car, and a brick 😉 This unforgettable day inspired me to ensure you maximize your initial days, weeks, and months on the job.
We’ll explore a straightforward framework, including PEOPLE, PROCESS, and PERFORMANCE, that will support in devising a seamless onboarding strategy.
I hear some of you..
But Jenn! What if I’m starting a new REMOTE job?
Don’t worry; I’ve got you covered! I have included BONUS tips for you on how you can make your virtual onboarding experience smoother.
Making a great first impression is just the beginning of building strong relationships with your colleagues and employer. Keep up the positive attitude and work ethic, and you will continue to impress those around you.
A simple framework to help you plan a smooth onboarding that includes these THREE components:
Meeting your new colleagues, clients, team members, support teams, and anyone you’re going to interact with is your first priority.
A fresh start! What a fabulous time to get organized and set good habits.
+ Think about how you want to manage your time?
+ Do you need to block time for creative projects?
Establishing your calendar right out of the gate will ensure success.
Clarify performance expectations and define achievement.
Of course, performance expectations don’t end after your onboarding. I might go out on a limb and say performance expectations BEGIN at the end of your onboarding.
Finally, give yourself some grace.
Believing in yourself is vital to closing one door and flourishing in a new job.
Undoubtedly, you will face difficulties, and there will be some missteps as you adjust. Keep a close eye on how far you’ve come, and enjoy your new beginning. ✰
