Interview is coming soon! For more info and free training head to JOINTNI.COM Now as a career strategist I’ve had the honor of being able to help
numerous professionals land their dream job offers and so if this is something
that you’re interested in working with me one-on-one I can give you details
about that at the end of this video so you’ve just started a new job and now
you’re wondering what do I need to do to really make sure that I can stand out in
this position in this company and be considered for promotions in the future
well my five do’s and don’ts are going to help you to start off your new
position on the right foot so let’s get into it do know your learning style and
use it when you get into a new job you have to be able to absorb all of the
information that tasks the duties and the training that you’re provided like a
sponge but that means that you need to understand how you learn best by knowing
what your learning style is just like when you’re studying for exams in school
if you find that the best way for you to understand concepts and things is by
taking notes then by all means take as many notes as you need or if you’re
someone who’s an audible learner meaning that you can learn through listening to
someone give you instructions then make sure that they clearly articulate what
it is that they need to share with you or if you’re someone who’s a visual
learner and you like looking at diagrams or flowcharts to be able to understand
what it is that you need to do then by all means create diagrams and flowcharts
if you learned by observation then make sure that the trainer or the supervisor
that’s showing you what you need to do guides you through it by giving you an
example by doing it through example and you can observe and watch how they do it
you need to know what your unique learning style is and be able to
articulate that to the trainer or the employer whoever it is that’s currently
training you don’t be afraid to share that with them because this actually
shows competence and confidence in yourself and you’ll be able to absorb
the information that you need to know quickly and effectively do you
understand how your manager likes to Train does your trainer or manager
prefer it that you ask questions at the end after they’ve gone through the steps
with you or do they prefer that you ask questions as they arise
if you don’t know these things then it’s a good thing to bring this up right
before your manager or trainer starts getting into the information with you
so that you’re both on the same page and that you’ll be able to absorb the
information quickly and that leads me into the next one which is don’t guess
what to do because you’re afraid to ask questions if you’re not sure of
something ask now I get it you’re afraid to sound annoying you’re
afraid to annoy your new boss by asking them questions but here’s the key the
way to ask questions and not sound annoying is to make sure that you’re not
asking them how do I do this again that can drive any person up the wall because
they’ll feel that you didn’t listen instead
you want to ask them in a smart way and so here’s an example based on the
training that we did together you mentioned steps a B and C what I’m
confused about is step D this is my understanding and now fill in what your
understanding is regarding step D and then you can ask am I correct am I on
the right track or am I missing something
when you ask a question that way by going through what you already know
based on what you’ve been taught by the trainer or manager it shows that you
were listening you’re paying attention but yes you have a little bit of
confusion in a certain area and you just want to clarify it doesn’t mean that
you’re saying I don’t know how to do it I wasn’t listening so can you just
explain it all over again and this leads me into my next point which is do ask
good questions now the previous example I gave you was an example of a good
question but there are also other types of good questions to ask the key to
asking good questions is where you’re making a link from whatever it is that
you’re being trained to the bigger picture for example if your boss tells
you you need to create a report that states a B and C every week a good
question to ask would be okay and since this report is being presented to senior
management for decision-making what are key areas that I should always highlight
to make the report as value-added as possible asking your question this way
shows that you’re linking whatever it is that you have to do whatever Duty you’re
being told to the bigger picture and finally do set mini targets for yourself
and achieve them after you go through the training process start to set mini
goals for yourself on exactly what it is that you’d like to accomplish and then
go ahead and start accomplishing them set one goal for yourself each day
during those first few weeks and months that you’re on the job for example one
target could be making sure that you have all of your projects outlined on
your calendar and knowing exactly what your to-do list is for each and every
project or assignment and if that’s too big of a goal for one day then you can
then break that down into mini goals and you can say I’m gonna work on this
assignment this one day and understand exactly what my requirements are for
this assignment as you do this setting mini goals for yourself and
accomplishing them it’s going to help you to build your confidence and your
ability to do your job well and it’s going to also lay the foundation for you
to be able to make a bigger impact in your company because once you’ve
mastered the small things you’re gonna need a collab a ones and here’s an
inspirational quote that I feel is fitting for what we’re talking about
today there are no secrets to success it is the result of preparation hard work
and learning from failure by : Powell so there you have it my 5 do’s and
don’ts on what you need to do in order to succeed in your new job so that you
can become an expert and thrive in your career now if you’re someone who has not

  1. Thanks, Linda. I always look forward to your posts. In my trading business, I have implemented many of your golden nuggets, so cannot thank you enough. My youtube channel exists now for the sole purpose of teaching others how I did it via trading in the currency markets

  2. I will be starting my new job next month! Thank you for posting this just in time! 💕

  3. Yeah… This is what am looking for in many years and she has just delivered them, keep it up. Thank you Linda.

  4. Don't guess what to do because you're afraid to ask questions… BEST ADVICE EVER!!!

  5. Linda, is there any advice on trying to stay in your company but change position (demotion) my current role is too hectic for me.

  6. Hi Linda. Great video and appreciate you putting this together. How do you assess organisational culture prior to starting a new role in the interview process? In the past, I have had to eject out of a job after a couple of weeks. The culture was toxic and miserable. Are there specific red flags during the interview process to avoid this? Sometimes its hard to know until you start working within that environment.
    Thanks.

  7. Always so helpful! Great timing for me, starting my new job in 2 weeks 😄 thank you!

  8. How did you know this is the exact video I needed to see after landing my dream job offer?

  9. Nice video. As always, you dispensed very practical, applicable and useful tips Linda. Thank you.

  10. Great tip to know your unique learning style. This will help a lot when starting a new job and it's important to be aware of this for career success! I love how you gave an example of how to ask a question if you're unsure of something. It's always best to highlight what you already know to make a point of the fact that you truly are aiming for success. Cheers!

  11. As always a valuable tip! thank you Linda for share your knowledge with us. Hugs from Brazil!

  12. Hi Linda, I really appreciate what you're doing helping young adults to land their dream jobs. I do something similar – but it's right before the job search process! Hope to connect to see if we can collaborate!

  13. Wow you are my hero, I listen your videos and I have my dream job! I’m starting this month! Thank u!

  14. I just started my new job a week ago and this video is definitely helpful! Thank you!

  15. Thank you for making this video! Super helpful for professionals like me. 👍

  16. 1. Do know your learning style & use it.
    2. Do understand how your manager likes to train.
    3. Do ask good questions.
    4. Don’t guess what to do because you’re afraid to ask questions.
    5. Do set mini targets for yourself & achieve them.

  17. Hi, could you share some tips about answering question like"How do you handle a difficult problem/unfamiliar problem at work"? thanks a lot.

  18. I liked the point about asking questions even when you are afraid of looking incompetent, and the trick to best do that by showing the trainer what you already know to do and then what you are unsure about. Very good advice! Because sometimes by not doing that, the trainer will go ahead and rehash the whole process again, thinking that you forgot everything, when that may not be the case at all.

  19. Asking the right questions in constructive, specific ways… I love it!

  20. Thank you. Your videos have really helped me alot. I just started on a new managerial position in the HR dept. One of role is to provide capacity building training/presentation/initiative to my junior peers. Any ideas?

  21. But what if your supervisor is playing around and treating the employees with racism…how can you just follow orders when you feel uncomfortable at the work place… please can you talk about the issues that can come across the place place.

  22. Hi I just want to say thank you 🙏🏼 coz I was just offered a job 2 days ago after using the interview tips from your channel. I realised I made plenty of mistakes from my past 2 interviews (I wasted the chance) , and on my 3rd I nailed it. Good preparation is crucial and the things we thought could help us to land a job were actually red flags . Thank you thank you 😊

  23. I could easily use D & B n own a business but choose not too.. sell out activities i would only do if transferring business over to 1781 quickly n might do that. I have a goal right now with a job .. i win either way. These recs really r not for me.. but playing duality is alright because of my peers. I never voted .. can also use that credit wout owning a physical business.

  24. I have watched three videos of your what I noticed that you are stressing on asking questions and how to ask good or smart ones. This time on this video it was the best way to deliver your point of view.
    Thanks,
