The first year in a new job is crucial to laying the foundations for future success. Make your first 12 months count by achieving these five important career goals...
You’ve aced the interview and landed that career defining new job, congratulations! However, the hard work is not over yet. When starting a new job, there are a few goals you should strive to achieve which will help you stand out and thrive in your new workplace.

When starting a new job, it’s easy to forget that other departments exist, as you will spend so much time getting to know your team. Networking with individuals in other departments can help you gain a better understanding of overall business objectives, and can provide a great source of new perspectives and ideas to help you further your career.
Listen and learn
No two jobs are ever the same. You may have had the same job title at your last role, but all companies operate differently. Listen closely to your new leaders – they may have invaluable techniques and approaches that can help you improve your performance.
Research shows that warmth is one of the first characteristics we judge when meeting somebody for the first time. Colleagues are more likely to help those who are kind to them, or have been in the past. At the end of the day, we all want to work with those who can put a smile on our face, don’t we?
Remind your boss
When you have just started a new job, it’s critical that you prove to your boss that they made the right decision by hiring you. If you show how capable and productive you are early on, it sets a positive tone and can get you noticed for all the right reasons.
When I first started out on my career journey, a mentor told me to always keep track of my achievements at work, as it’s easy to forget them when the time comes to find a new role. Implemented a new system? Gained a big new client? Made a large cost saving for the company? These are all great achievements; write these down somewhere you won’t forget.
