Action Plan for the First 100 Days in a New Job | Leverage Ambition

Advertisements

Congratulations on your new job! We all know how tough it can be to get a job. First comes the application, where you have to make sure your experience is relevant to the job. When applying to each specific job, it is imperative to make sure you highlight all of your relevant experience on your resume as it relates to the job you are applying for. You are more likely to get into a new position when your keywords in your resume and cover letter mimic those in the job position at hand.

Your interviews went well, and you sent them thank you notes. You send all of your references thank you notes as well. You are ready for your first day of work!

The first 100 days of your position are critical, as you already may know. This is a great time to get to know your colleagues, get a better understanding of the culture, learn more about the business and the processes, and finally make a good impression by pulling together a concrete action plan for your first three months.

  1. LEARN + LISTEN

Now that everyone is collaborating digitally, this can be a challenge. It is imperative to make your presence known, and it is important to be enthusiastic and willing to learn. This means listening to your employees and colleagues alike. It is imperative you get to know your boss well too. What is his take on the business now? What goals does he expect in your role? How does he see this role progressing?

All of these initial meetings will pay off in the long run. When you take interest in others, and other departments, you get a better look and feel of how the wheels turn and the different personalities at hand. It can be tough to be outgoing, especially when you are meeting new people, but as long as you are respectful and enthusiastic, where you are eager to learn, others will help you.

2. MEET NEW COLLEAGUES + FIGURE OUT THE COMPANY AS A WHOLE

It is key to settle in the first week by making introductions and setting meetings to connect with all the department heads to get a better understanding of the business and how they imagine you collaborating together.

By the end of the first month, you should have a good grasp on the company and what is going on now. You should also bring your recommendations to your CEO for approval. He will go over your expectations and then approve the plan as you see it. It is critical to review any new hires you think you will need during your transition, and the experience they will need to do it. You’ll need to get approval on the salary and budget accordingly.

3. UNDERSTAND YOUR MARKET + HOW YOUR COMPANY FITS IN

By the end of the second month you should have a full action plan on where the company is now, where the company can be by 6 months to a year, and your plan to take them to the next level. This can include the different markets that may be interested in your new product, the marketing that will be needed to take the company from point A to point B, the products that will need to be built or worked on respectively, and the budget needed to get there.

4. LISTEN TO YOUR CLIENTS

Understanding the clients that are already working with the company are key. This will give you a better understanding of what markets are working for the company to date and how they will contribute to the business itself. Your job is to play matchmaker and hunt for all those companies that would be stellar clients and perfect fits to your product now.

5. PULL TOGETHER AN ACTION PLAN

By the end of the third month, you should be focused on the results on your first 3 months. You know your progress best, and giving a full summary presentation to your boss will help him understand the hard work and elbow grease you put into your plan. You should be able to give him a more clear idea on how you will execute new hires and work with the HR to help build the business.

After the first 100 days or so, you should be able to produce the execution plan and focus on executing new deals.

Congratulations on your new job, and break a leg!
