I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm the head coach for and welcome to the 3rd and final part of this series about getting started in a new job, The 1st 30, 60 and 90 days in your new role. And this 1 is going to be dealing with 61 through 90.If you haven't watch the other 2, watch those 1st Ones because this 1 really deals with the final 30 days after you join.

I want to start off by saying by now, each of you is feeling comfortable with one another and there is the beginning of the tendency to start acting like (I would just use the stereotype here), old married couples Let's start taking one another for granted.

I want to remind you that you can still have the honeymoon even at this time in your new job. However, it's really up to you to put in the drive and the energy to do it.

Continue by meeting with your boss and getting feedback and continue meeting with people within your organization to whom you been providing service To elicit information and feedback from them.

One of the mistakes that many of you made in your job search was to Not really sustain your network. Thus, I want to encourage you to reach out to folks. If you haven't already done so who are in your network of relationships, who you may have previously tapped on the shoulder for support during your job search And thank them, telling them what's going on and what you are doing, stuff along those lines.

Continue to record successes. I'm going to repeat that. Continue to record your successes So that when you meet with your boats and perhaps when it comes to review time, you have that available to you. Start looking at the progress that you have made toward the goals that you have set for you when you joined the organization. If you recall what I said in the 1st in the series, your boss or your manager is going to set goals down for you for what you need to accomplish and you want to be able to demonstrate that you met what their expectations were.

Then, the thing you want to start doing is thinking about what your goals are going to be next. That's because by now, you may have an idea of places where you can be of value to the firm Beyond simply the goals that were originally set for you by your boss.

Get off target? Get back on target.Think about how you got distracted from the original intention because this kind of behavior can sabotage you in the future. Learn from your mistakes, instead of beating yourself up.
