In today's economy, landing a job –- any job –- is a big deal. After landing a job, it's tempting to celebrate and sit back a bit. However, it’s important to make a good impression right off. The new book 'I've Landed My Dream Job–-Now What???' tells how to do that.
There's a lot of advice for getting a job, but very little about the critical adjustment and proving time just after the job begins. Hit the ground running on day one of a new job with this guide to succeeding during
the first 30 days.
"This guide should be a must read for anybody who is currently seeking employment or even considering it. If you truly want to 'seize the accomplishment' of your next career step, you need not look further than 'I've Landed My Dream Job—Now What???'"- Timothy Johnson, Chief Accomplishment Officer, Carpe Factum, Inc.
A new employee who is productive super fast offers a huge advantage to a manager and for the employee too. Yet the first days at a new job can be intense and filled with anxiety. Virtually everything is new –- corporate culture, team dynamics, management styles, and more. It’s critical to navigate a new workplace with confidence right off.
Here are 5 action items critical for success at a new job:
1. Manage the transition from an old job to a new one.
2. Evaluate the fit of the new workplace.
3. Identify the real decision makers.
4. Integrate into the culture of the team and job.
5. Determine which aspects of the job are most meaningful to the manager – this is key to
"Bring this book to your new job. It is like having a job coach come to work with you to tell you what to do next. It will help you think through what you're going to accomplish and how to measure your accomplishments. The end goal is job security and success," says Herrick.
