Finding—and landing—a good job can be a difficult but rewarding task.
However, once you do that, the work isn’t done. In fact, perhaps an even more difficult task lies immediately ahead.
That’s because a new job involves not one, but two “sells.” They are as follows:
That’s right, you must convince your new employer that the decision they just made to hire you was the correct decision. This is why companies often have a “probation period” for new employees. It’s so they can determine whether or not their hiring decision was a good one . . . or a bad one.
As a result, as soon as you’re hired, your #1 priority should be to add as much value to the company as quickly as you can.
Below are five ways that you can accomplish this:
Companies want employees who are always growing and evolving, and they especially want employees who grow and evolve as quickly as possible. That’s because the more quickly this happens, the more quickly they start to earn a return on their investment in those employees.
In addition, striving to grow as much as you can when you first start your job will help to brand yourself to your new co-workers and supervisor in a positive fashion. They’ll associate you with an eager and positive attitude and as somebody who gets things done.
Landing a good job is a rewarding task . . . but excelling at that job can hold even greater rewards.
