Read these simple ideas to fast track your career success
Starting a new job is an exciting experience, yet can often feel daunting as you navigate your way through a new environment while learning about the role. Despite your nerves, it’s essential to aim for excellence from day one. Here’s how:
Reach out with confidence
You will be surprised how beneficial it is to reach out and learn from senior team members right from the get-go. Try moving around the office to get to know key people that can help mentor you. Spend time learning, listening and engaging with colleagues that are willing to share their advice. Your team members will appreciate your initiative.
Build your network and don’t be afraid to use it
Build and maintain strong relationships with fellow colleagues and senior managers by offering your assistance whenever you have capacity. These relationships will soon become reciprocal and mean you can seek their advice and assistance when you need it. The relationships you form may even lead to new and better opportunities.
Be open to feedback and learn from it
Surround yourself with people you trust that can give you constructive feedback to help guide your career path. Feedback may be tough to hear sometimes but always keep in mind it is given for your benefit, to strengthen your skills and help you grow professionally.
