Stay Hungry: You Got the Job, Now Stay Relevant

Spectrum Staffing is among the most experienced recruitment agencies in NJ, and our expertise gathered over more than 25 years has allowed us to have unique access into both the employer and job seeker perspectives. While the main goal of a job seeker is to obviously get hired, don’t make the mistake of thinking the work is over once you start your new job. Once you get your foot in the door, the continuation of your goal should be to prove to your boss why it was the right decision. Check out these ways to stay relevant at your new job:

Take Initiative

Don’t wait around to be told what to do – take initiative and ask how you can help or if there is anything else that needs to be done. Whenever there is a voluntary task, offer up your time. You’ll be known as a team player who goes above and beyond, not just someone who will do the bare minimum.

Offer Solutions

So many employees get caught up in the cycle of complaining about what’s going wrong in their workplace, but don’t take the steps needed to problem solve. Make it a point to always be considering possible solutions. Whenever you think of ones that may be viable, don’t hesitate to bring them to your manager.

Get to Know People

Avoid getting hired and then fading into the background. Put in the effort to get to know other people and immerse yourself into the company culture. Keeping your head down and performing your work isn’t enough to stay relevant – you need to be a part of the workplace and form professional relationships with your colleagues.

Ask for Feedback

Show that you strive to be the best you can be by asking for feedback on a regular basis. After you complete a major task or project, ask your boss if there’s anything else you could have done or if they have advice for doing even better next time. And if you don’t have much face-to-face time with your boss, be proactive and ask to schedule a meeting.
