Recently, a friend got hired for a new job in one of the biggest organisations around, her fear was not about what she was going to do there as she had the skills needed already. Her major worry was how she was going to position herself in that new opportunity, given that she had been working with an organisation that wasn’t as big as the current one she had. Just like her, when transitioning to a new job, many people still find it hard, especially when it comes to positioning themselves for success. Leonette Uwera, a journalist and radio presenter says, first of all, landing a new job is a great opportunity one would never want to mess up with. She says although working hard at the onset is crucial, finding out ways to get along for better success is also something that cannot be overlooked. According to her, she believes that a simple thing like getting familiar with the environment you are yet to work from as well as getting to know other people is very important. “All these will happen if you are in a position to communicate well with those around you. I believe by getting a chance for that particular opportunity, you already have what it takes to be there,” she says. Uwera notes that you have to first be able to get along with others as well as make time for people within the organisation. Sylvester Twizerimana, a psychologist and youth mentor says for in your new job, it’s just imperative that one remains professional at the same time. In addition to this, he says that you should be in a position to always get involved with new work or projects or any other related duties whenever they are available. If you won’t be in a position to do simple things like these, he says in one way it might ruin your reputation or your professional performance in general. As a mentor, Twizerimana says that one of the attitudes he tries to instill into young people is the ability to respect all people regardless of their positions. In fact, he mentions that ensuring that you go out of your way to communicate with and respect everyone you come into contact with at your new job is very crucial. In addition to this, the psychologist notes that getting to learn who makes a difference is also important. “You don’t have to work hard to please those above you only. Take every opportunity you can to ensure everyone around you is happy and impressed with what you deliver or how you get along with others,” he says. Also, he says that working on your networks is also important, explaining that getting time to talk to others or introducing yourself to anyone you meet around is important as it might make a greater significance as far as being successful in your new job is concerned. Don’t try and figure out the minimum time you need to be at work to be successful. Instead, show that you’re willing to do whatever is necessary to get the job done. Also, it’s advised that one ought to make the most of their first days at work successful, and this comes in different ways from working to find ways of getting along well with others.
