You probably started researching your role prior to your interview. But now that you’ve actually landed the job, you need a tighter grip on the latest news regarding your role, company and industry.  Executive Recruiter Alexander Marvin from CyberCoders recruiting firm explains: “It depends on what kind of job you have. If you’re the new software developer, then you want to read up on new technologies."
HOW: Commit yourself to doing research on your own time by reading the news daily and following experts in the field via Twitter and blogs. To find relevant people on Twitter, use the hash feature by typing in “#,” followed by the topic in the search engine: e.g., #technology. For specific questions about your new company, you can get answers from real employees via online career resources, like CareerBliss’ Company Q&A feature and reviews.

Congrats on your new job! You managed to snag a position in this market condition. You might think the hard part is over — but now is the perfect time to prepare for the most challenging part: how to keep your job and create a lasting impression at your new company.

The first 90 days is the prime time to pull out all the stops and prove to the company that you’re an invaluable asset. If you’re serious about your job, then it’s important to put in just as much, if not more, effort into keeping it as you did to secure your position. Be sure to consider the following tips, identified by CyberCoders, to maximize your chances of making a great and — most importantly — lasting impression on your new company.
