Your New Employee Challenge

If You Choose To Accept It

I heard someone say the other day something to the effect of …

“I’m new at work and I’m not yet sure yet how my performance will be judged.”

New jobs can be hard. I like to have some idea about how I will be judged even before I start. I almost always ask the hiring manager. Sometimes, though, that’s easier said than done.

Regardless of how your performance metrics are calculated, just remember:

“As an employee: Your challenge is to become an obviously good investment.”

Note: I’m not sure where that quote came from. If you know, please contact me.
