We’ve all been there. It’s the night before the first day of your new role and the nerves start to kick in. It’s only natural and if it doesn’t affect you, then count yourself lucky.
In the first few weeks of a job, it will definitely work in your favour if you make a good impression, show initiative and make a positive impact on the business. And while the future of your career is in your manager’s hands, the chance to create a good impression is in yours. There are plenty of ways that you can impress your new boss without looking like you are trying too hard- nobody wants to be that person.
Every role is different here are a few examples to give you an idea of the types of things that work well across most roles and industries. Once you get into the role, you will have better clarity as to how you can add value and show initiative to your manager.
To really stand out from the crowd and make your mark in your new role, why not use an analytics dashboard? It will display all of your KPIs, from across various tools, in one place, saving you hours of time in manual data entry and reporting. Using a dashboard will give you a better way of showing off everything you are bringing to the table, and the hours you save means you can concentrate your efforts in other areas.
