Congratulations On Your New Assignment
They worked very well together once open communication was restored, but don’t wait for someone else to intercede! Until your manager specifies another schedule for standing meetings (if s/he schedules regular meetings), take it upon yourself to check in.
Check in after each work assignment is completed, so you can get immediate feedback to make any necessary adjustments for future tasks.
I once hired an entry-level marketing assistant who was assigned to report directly into a senior executive.
This executive expected his directs to “get in his face” (his words) with questions or concerns, or else he was going to go about his very busy day.
Ask for introductions to people in the other departments who you might need but will not see regularly.
You may also, however, be a bit nervous about your first days ahead – trust us, you are certainly not the first one to feel this way.Ideally the company has an orderly and comprehensive onboarding plan in place, but make a checklist for yourself just in case. In addition to official paperwork, you also want to attend to your creature comforts so that you can be refreshed throughout the day.Get a tour of the environment and note the location of bathrooms, coffee and water, office supply room, and privacy rooms or conference space where you can steal away for a few moments of quiet time, if you’re otherwise in an open space.This marketing assistant thought that popping by unannounced would be perceived as disrespectful to his calendar.A few weeks into the arrangement, he wondered why he never saw his new hire, she felt ignored, and I (in HR) had to broker a new understanding.We will miss you, but realize that exciting opportunities and challenges await you. I want you to know that we are very excited about your success and know that you have worked hard to earn it.It has been an honor to be your colleague for the past five years. At your request, I will no longer hold your position open here at Doe Corporation.If you didn’t have a chance to meet before you started (see point 1), ask for company reading material now.Ask for organizational charts of groups you should know – ones you’ll be working with or the executive team overall.To help you feel a bit more confident, we’ve put together seven steps designed to help boost your confidence as you embark on (and succeed in) your first (of hopefully many) travel nursing adventure with Advantage RN.Here they are: Feeling a little more confident and prepared for what’s ahead? Your journey is sure to be unpredictable at times, and that’s part of the fun.
