The Starting Point

You’ve landed a great job. Now what?

When you show up for your new job on Day One, you’ll enter an unfamiliar world of unknown people and unwritten rules. If you want to succeed with your great new job, there’s a lot you have to learn. And learn fast.

You suddenly have a boss (who has great power over your day-to-day life). You’re part of a team whose members will make snap judgments about you.You’ll have to figure out what the heck is a “chain of command”… and why you’re on the bottom rung.

Your success—and perhaps your career—depends on the tangible results you deliver. But your job description barely mentions specific “results” (maybe you’re expected to guess…). Your performance will be measured, evaluated, and criticized in ways you never expected. Failure definitely is an option.

If this new world of work is confusing, The First Hundred Days can be your trusted guide to survival and success. Packed with practical advice, checklists, and personal stories, The First Hundred Days shows you how to handle work-related relationships, performance metrics, reputation management, and other career-building challenges.

This is the one book that will help you hit the ground running in a brand-new job… and show you how to become a rising star in your new career.
