A company’s decision to hire you is an indication that you have the ability to become a productive and valued employee. As a new employee, your goal is to prove that they made the right hiring decision. Achieving this means – showing up ready to work, taking initiative, enthusiasm, putting in the extra hours (if needed), and of course, your overall job performance.
Following these guidelines may increase your chance of a future salary raise, promotion, and an overall good reputation in your workplace. In this guide, we offer some suggestions on how you can keep your job after you have been hired.
1) Job Profile: Whether you’re a new recruit or an old one, you need to know what you’ve been hired to do. Although you may think you’re doing a great job, it’s of no use unless that’s what’s expected of you.
2) Keep Learning: No knowledge that is gained is ever wasted. Try and learn as many skills as you can once at work; this will give you an edge over your colleagues. Further, it will help you get involved with other departments. This will take you a long way in your career.
3) Build Relations: Create a good rapport with your teammates and colleagues. One tends to spend more than half his day at work; it should be a pleasant one. Make sure you stick to your commitments; if unable to for some reason, be upfront.
4) Stand Out: Excel at your work, and be a team player. At the same time, take part in activities organized by your company and mingle with your colleagues.
5) Feedback: A vital part of your work life, make sure you take feedback from your superiors and take it in the right way.
