CompleteMarkets
The purpose of this blog is to help guide those who struggle to find employment in the Insurance and Financial Services industry. Every week I will post blogs to help job seekers through the hiring process. The blog posts will focus on; resume building, what words you should and shouldn't use on resumes, staying active in the job search, how to be successful on CompleteMarkets and get in front of recruiters and employers, providing relevant information regarding employment etc. It is my goal to take you from being a job seeker to an employed insurance professional.
Your New Career
We all know that searching for a job can be exhausting, frustrating and time consuming! What most people don’t talk about is what happens after you get the job.

It is natural to feel nervous, scared, stressed or overwhelmed. In most jobs it is the first 90 days that will determine if you pass the probation period or not, so the pressure is on. It is important to start your new career strong. I came across an article by Phil Miller and he shares some tips for every new employee just starting their career:

 Write Down Goals and Track Them
 Determine How You Will Be Measured
 Build Support
 Do Excellent (and difficult) Work Without Complaint
 Do Work That Matters
 Drive Results You Can Describe
 Seek Feedback
 Network
 Be Patient
 Be Impatient
 Have a good attitude about the whole thing

These are great tips to survive your first 90 days in a new work place. It is also important to continue to practice these tips after your probation period.

It’s going to be stressful the first few months; no one said a new career would be easy. There is so much to learn and adjust to. So, once you make it past your probation period, take a breath and relax. The hard part is over, now that doesn’t mean slack off and don’t stick to these tips. You want to start off strong and continue to stay that way.

Invest yourself in your new company because the company is investing in you!

In my experience in working with employers, they are willing to invest in their employees and they are not going to invest if their intention is to fire you during or after your probation period. Here at CompleteMarkets our employers are looking for employees to invest in. They want someone who wants a career, not just a job with a paycheck. There is plenty of room to grow with a company and have a stable career.

Take a look at the jobs we have and please feel free to ask me any questions you have!
