How to Succeed in Your First 90 Days in Your New Job

Your first 90 days in your new job are crucial to your long-term success because this period is known as your probation. At the end of 3 months, the question on your employer’s mind is simple: Should you stay and build your career in this company or go and find employment elsewhere?


So, if this is your ‘dream job,’ i.e. the one that’s right for you, right now, what can you do to ensure that your employer wants you to stay?


I have 3 top tips to share with you to help you succeed in your first 90 days in your new job and they are relevant whatever your age and whatever your industry, rank, or profession.


Aim for excellence!


First of all, you’ve been hired to do a job, and this might sound obvious, but do it! If you’re a graduate or school-leaver, you will undoubtedly receive a lot of training in this period. Pay attention, be a sponge, ask questions and be proactive. Put what you learn into action as quickly as you can. Aim for excellence in all that you are asked to do.


If you’re more experienced, you’ve been hired for what you already know and for the expertise you’ve already acquired so don’t be afraid to put that into action. Use your initiative and make a positive difference!
