Starting a new job can be a stressful time, whether it’s your first job out of college or taking on a more senior role. All companies have their own acronyms and systems that can make you feel like you’re on the outside looking in when you enter the door. Here are three tips I always give to new employees about how to hit the ground running:
Don’t try to be somebody you’re not:
Your company would not have hired you if you were not exceptional. So be true to who you are, be comfortable being who you are, and be comfortable letting your voice be heard. With everything so new when you start, it’s easy to lose your sea legs and not feel like yourself. It’s vital that you lean in and re-invest in who you are. Have faith that you are at your new job for a reason, and that your new employer wants you to be you.
