5 Successful Ways for Newly Employed

5 Successful Ways for Newly Employed

If you put all your strength and faith and vigor into a job and try to do the best you can, the money will come. ~Lawrence Welk

Congratulations!  You have successfully secured your first job.  Take the opportunity to do the right things from the beginning.  Developing good habits and building a long-term career for advancement are the steps to take. Here are five things that matter the most when you have just started out:

1.       Build trust: You were employed because of your technical capabilities. The employer is not so sure how much you can be trusted in how you do the job. It is important to build the trust of others in you right from the beginning. Go to work early. Get the job done fully as required and promise only when you can deliver. It takes a long time to build trust. Work diligently to build your reputation.     

2.       Reaching out: The first important thing is to get to know your job. Be observant, listen and learn from others. As you learn write it down because you cannot remember everything. Get to know the nitty gritty of your job by asking questions. Be humble so that others will tech you willingly. Find out the structure and culture of the establishment. Be willing to accept criticism with an open mind.

3.       Build relationships: Building rapport with fellow colleagues by remembering people’s names. Acknowledge others with a smile. Cooperate with other and get things done as instructed so that you will be likable.

4.       Work hard: There is no substitute for hard work. You can work smart but you still have to put in effort and be ready to do more to show your interest in your new job.  Working more and talking less is the way to go.

The only thing that overcomes hard luck is hard work. ~Harry Golden

5.       Be responsible:  Show excitement and enthusiasm in your new job. Whatever you do your work comes first. This is to establish commitment. Do what you have to do, big or small, meticulously and aim for excellence.

There is joy in work. There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something. ~Henry Ford

To find out what one is fitted to do, and to secure an opportunity to do it, is the key to happiness. ~John Dewey
