To the New Employee

To the New Employee

You have just become a new employee of an organization. Your performance over the next few months will be monitored by many to determine if you are the good fit they thought you might be when you were selected. The first thirty days are especially critical because it is a time for learning, adapting, and showing what you can do. This book is designed to help you get off to a good start and progress in your new job without making unnecessary mistakes.

You will find it helpful to read the book right through and then reread it page-by-page as you advance through your first thirty days. Assess your progress at the end of each week using the forms provided for this purpose. This will enable you to incorporate what you have learned, and still need to learn, in your objectives for the following week. Then at the end of thirty days request a meeting with your supervisor to review your progress.

A successful adjustment to your new job will give you greater confidence in yourself. Your new co-workers and superiors will also notice your progress, and as this happens, you will gain acceptance and recognition. You will have launched your career successfully.

Good Luck!
