How to Wow Your Boss in the First 90 Days
New employees can take proactive steps to ensure they are successful in their first 90 days on the job.

Arguably the main objective of any worker starting a new job is to prove that the company made the right decision in hiring them. So for employees, the pressure is on. Somewhere between first-day jitters and complete comfort and confidence lies the first 90 days, commonly referred to as the probationary period.    

The first 90 days are a crucial initial stage of employment. The unfortunate truth is that sometimes, employers make the wrong decision and pick a bad hire. So it’s incumbent upon a new employee to make sure that’s not the case. Everyone is looking at the new employee to sink or swim. Will they step up to the plate during this critical time in the industry or will they buckle under the weight of so much demand? Ideally, employees should do the latter.
