Be sure to make a focused effort in getting to know the key people you will be dealing with, which are likely your boss, human resources and the administrative professionals at your new company. Dive right into the dynamic of your office and introduce yourself to people you don’t know in the kitchen, bathroom, etc. Marvin makes the point, “The more people you know at work, the more comfortable you’re going to feel and the more productive you’re going to be.”
HOW: Use lunchtime as a means of getting to know more people at work. It helps to try and remember the names of other professionals you encounter in your office as well as their role in the company. However, it’s important to keep conversations professional by avoiding sensitive topics, such as religion and politics to ensure an air of respect. In fact, consider meeting up with professionals at your new company to chat and engage in friendly gossip even before your first day.

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.
