Congratulations! You got the job! Now, you need to know what to do in order to keep it.
Be on Time
Timeliness is next to Godliness, right? Being on time is crucial. As a matter of fact, it is not enough to be on time. You should actually arrive early. Arriving to work ahead of or on time shows your boss that you care about your role in the company and wish to remain an employee. Being on time is crucial and please, if you’re going to be late, call ahead!
All great leaders need to know how to take direction, but taking the lead is beneficial as well. As an employee it can be easy to get into the habit of waiting for your boss to give you orders. Switch it up and take the lead! Asking questions, making suggestions and starting on your own will show your boss that you are more than just an employee—you are an essential part of their team. Don’t be afraid to speak up when the time is right. With enough perseverance you could make your way to a raise or a promotion!
Plans don’t eliminate error, but they certainly help! It is important to look at every problem from all angles, that way when something comes up you can be prepared. If possible, organize and plan everything out up to the very last minute. Being prepared can turn a week-long setback into a day-long project!
