30-60-90-Day Plan for Success

If you’re looking for a new job and you want to really impress the employer, you should consider writing a 30-60-90-day plan. Starting a new job can be stressful.  Having a plan can help guide you.  Plus, it’s a great way to have an interviewer remember you. Our team at High Profile has designed this post to help you understand the importance of creating a 30-60-90-day plan for success.

What exactly is a 30-60-90-Day Plan?

It’s a written outline of your first 90 days on your new job. When you plan out your goals for the first 90 days of your job, you have created your own vision of yourself within the company and you give yourself the ability to reach your full potential as a new employee.

The First 30 Days

Your first few weeks on the job are a learning phase, so make sure you act like a sponge and soak up as much information as possible. You should be learning about the company itself and what its goals and strategic objectives are. You should also find out what your boss expects of you, and have a plan for how you will meet or exceed those expectations. Take the time to learn about your fellow coworkers, customers, and clients. The company culture should also become apparent after the first 30 days.

Hitting 60 Days

Once you have a good feel for the company, it’s time to start contributing your knowledge and expertise. Meet with your boss and discuss how you can actively be a factor in the company’s growth. It’s time to start taking on more responsibilities within and outside of your department.

Reaching 90 Days

When you get to 90 days, you should know exactly how you fit within the company. You should completely understand your role and what you need to do to succeed. Determine how you can get more involved whether it’s with a board, committee, or other group. It’s important to network within your organization because you should want people to know who you are.

Remember, your 30-60-90-day plan should plan your path from a new hire to a great employee. For more tips on organizing your plan, contact one of our expert recruiters today.
