THIS IS NOT AN EMPLOYMENT OFFER!!
Please read the post beforehand.


CONGRATULATIONS! You got a job. Now what?

It's good to celebrate a win, especially when you land a new job because it's an accomplishment of all of your hard work, and it's finally paid off. It's a new chapter that also gives you new opportunities.

But what comes next?

Landing the job is one thing, but the next challenge you face is keeping it, learning a new environment, settling into a new role to finally feel adjusted; to develop a new routine. Many people are too excited for a new opportunity that they begin mentally planning ahead while forgetting they're facing probationary period hurdles.

Adapting to a New Role: 5 Reminders

  1. DO NOT OVERWHELM YOURSELF! Focus on getting through one day at a time through your probationary period. Yes, the beginning could be chaotic, yes, the beginning could be disorganized, misguided, confusing, all over the place, and make you feel like you don't know what you are doing. This is normal. Adapting to a new position takes time even with the experience you bring because you are learning a new company structure while developing your own routine to utilize your skill sets consistently.

  2. ASK QUESTIONS! Staring a new role often feels like you are a mouse in a lion's den. It enables you to be shy, quiet, maybe hold back on asking questions, but this is setting you up to fail. Ask questions, lots of questions because you need-to-know what foundation you've come into, and how to continue building onto that existing foundation using your own experience while gaining new experience. Don't feel guilty for burdening others by asking questions. This is why you are a part of a team - collaborate, communicate, question, and learn.

  3. TAKE NOTES! You can do this the old fashioned way and handwrite reminders, notes, track system passwords, etc., or step it up and use voice memos/recorders so that you can go back and listen, revisit or remind yourself of something. Train your brain toward absorbing details, processes, and information as you learn along the way. Every day is a puzzle piece and your memory may be good, but it's not good enough to remember every single thing, every detail, as it comes at you rapidly. Be prepared as this will help you in the long run.

  4. YOU ARE BEING EVALUATED IN EVERYTHING! When you begin a new position, everyone you work with, speak to, collaborate with, partner with, train with is watching you. They are evaluating you, how you work, how you listen, how you absorb and retain information, how you handle situations, challenges, and others. They are watching you silently and reporting back to management. It's normal because you are new, but the key thing to remember in the beginning or at any point, is that not everyone is your friend or may have your best interest, you have to watch what you do and say, and definitely don't overshare things about your personal/professional life that can become office gossip the next day. Engage, but take your time with learning individual characters because there is always someone on the inside that is or may be envy of you, envy that you were hired for a position over them - you never know. Be mindful, be respectful, and observe everything happening around you.

  5. KEEP COMMUNICATION OPEN - ALWAYS! Communication is one of the biggest problems that lacks from individuals to groups, to companies, etc. This pairs with #2 because you are also keeping any and all communication open on your end. Take initiate, be communicative, learn to read the room at all times. If you learn of one thing about any person, it helps you to connect with them, make them feel comfortable with you, working with you, and allows both parties to be themselves like an onions layers being peeled little by little. If you encourage strong communication, establish it from the very beginning, it helps you thrive in your new role.

Welcome to the end of the beginning.

In Arkansas, you need to have a pharmacy Tech license. If you go onto the Ar Pharmacy State Board it should tell you what all you will have to do. Background check and drug screen

It’s better to have experience but some pharmacies will train you on the job but you should go to the PTCB.Org and read over what you need. I did this program on my own and passed the national certification test. Good luck.

I think it is the most important experience to have a working ethic. Be on time, show up for your shift, and willingness to learn.

If I was given a verbal offer for an office job, no driving involved, but it’s contingent on back ground check. I Hv a DUI (Misdemeanor) will this prevent me from getting hired

I learned to clean very young in life. I applied for many cleaning positions and found that you showing them your sample of cleaning usually gets me hired. True to yourself. Be friendly and honest.

As long as you can pass an initial drug test, you’ll get hired. You literally don’t have to speak one word of English. Just a heads up…Amazon is a VERY strenuous and physical job. It’s not for everyone but there are many different departments so if you have the opportunity to find your niche, you’ll probably be fine. Best of luck! I’m on year 5!

I unfortunately lost my job with lifemoves this past month on the 22nd, and really took me while to get myself together and stronger. I've done what I needed to from updating resume and LinkedIn to applying to jobs, yet so far no calls for interview or anything 😩 Any suggestions on what I can do better or change so that I can become successful in landing a more fitting career hopefully before end of month?
