Take 5: Getting Off to a Good Start in Your New Job

Job on Calendar

When you’re a new employee, there’s a lot to take in: campus culture, learning names and faces, figuring out where various offices are on campus, exploring your role in your department and your specific duties (assigned and otherwise), and what your supervisor is expecting of you in the first month or two. It can be overwhelming at first, especially while coming down from the high of landing the job in the first place. Also, don’t forget that your interview hasn’t ended; have your elevator speech still at the front of your mind in the beginning, as you will most likely use it again when you continue to meet more new people around campus.
