Make an Unforgettable First Impression at Your New Company

So you landed the job you’ve been hoping for? Congratulations! All the hard work networking, interviewing, applying, and waiting has paid off. You finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Getting hired may feel like the end goal but the reality is that you are just getting started. Here’s what you should know in order to keep that job and get yourself a long-term offer or a pay raise in no time. Let’s go!

Every day for the first thirty days, you can take four actions weekly to secure your job and thrive in the new company.


Are you really ready for this new job? Some people are going to hate me for pointing this out but if your life is a mess, you aren’t going to be fully focused and perform well on the job.

0.1. Check Yourself For Readiness. Here are some red flags that you aren’t ready:

  • You live too far away so the commute will be a killer
  • You don’t have a car to get to the job (and public transportation to get to work sucks)
  • You are in the middle of a personal life crisis
