Starting a new job? Answer these 4 questions.

By Antal International

From the very first months in your new job, every move you make sets the course for your future progress. If you get off to a good start, you'll keep going right to the end. All it takes is a little preparation and confidence. To help you, here are 4 questions you can start preparing.


1. How Will I Make a Difference?

Think about what your role is meant to achieve and what makes you stand out. Consider why they picked you, looking at both your skills and how well you fit with the team and company culture.


2. Who Can Support Me?

Seek out a buddy before or during your first days on the job. Having someone to relate to eases anxiety and provides a comfortable environment for asking questions. Understand the dynamics of your new environment to secure support effectively—it’s about more than just building relationships; it’s about understanding others’ goals and how you can contribute.


3. Where Can I Achieve Quick Wins?

Starting with small, tangible improvements can generate momentum and establish credibility swiftly. Proactively pursuing these wins accelerates your learning curve. It will also boost your productivity and your satisfaction at work.


4. What Skills Can I Enhance?

Even though you were selected for your expertise and soft skills, there's always room to grow. Find areas where you can excel even more, which will speed up your progress within the company. Recognizing and working on skill gaps is essential for your continuous development and advancement.


If you begin addressing these four questions, your integration and onboarding process will become much smoother, and you'll see quicker results in your performance. Ultimately, this will positively impact your career progression within the organization. Remember to keep asking questions and seeking feedback and reviews along the way.
