First year on the Job.

As the economy improves, people are beginning
to get interviews.  The interviews are leading to
some offers and a quickening pace of starting
jobs.

Some ACS workshops have reviewed five topics related
to developing and working on when starting out on a
new position.  They involve learning about company
culture, improving communication skills, adopting
noteworthy day-to-day working practices,
engaging in professional development and learning
from performance reviews.  Erin Burt wrote a nice piece

1.  contrasting the need to leave the culture of
procrastination
and cramming at the last minute and
be proactive
and

2.  underscoring some strategic long-term career
steps for which one does not get immediate rewards
(mentoring, networking, being a team player, etc.).
