Class discussion. First year on the job
Filed under: First Year on Job
Posted by: BlogMaster @ 5:29 pm

We had a guest speaker in class this week, 
Jeremy Kocielecki. from DuPont, who talked about
things to prepare for and expect in a
professional’s first year on the job.

He focused on three:
(1) things to make sure you learn to work successfully,
(2) effective communication and
(3) performance reviews. 

He encouraged people to have a personal, take-
it-with-you-when-you-leave journal” that documents
what you do, think and observe.  You can use this
when creating your annual performance review.

He emphasized working closely with your boss and
refraining from writing emails until you actually
discuss it over with your boss.
  Email is so prevalent
and used for legal evidence so much, one needs to
be fully aware.  See a business netiqutte
site
for a good discussion.

It is so important to start well off in a new position.
