If you want to stick around, avoid asking for time off unless it’s absolutely necessary for two main reasons. Firstly, the first three months is a critical time for you to learn about and acclimate into the company culture, so any days off means you may miss out on valuable learning time. Secondly, asking for time off so soon after you’re hired may come off as unenthused and undedicated.
HOW: If you know you absolutely must take leave within the 90-day span, or if there is an emergency, explain the circumstance to your higher-ups as soon as possible — preferably before your start date. That way, your company is aware and can work in projects around it.

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.
