Enthusiasm of job search should continue into first months in new role, says CV contributor

August 9, 2016

People working in PSE should maintain the enthusiasm of their job search even after securing a new position, writes Nicole Matos for Chronicle Vitae. To begin, Matos recommends that new employees make as many connections as possible across different departments before a “silo effect” puts them in contact only with those who have similar roles. Further, Matos argues that it is important for newly hired professionals to resist feeling that they are somehow “done” once they have found a job, and to focus instead on bringing the “competitive edge” of their job-seeking mentality into their new role. Chronicle Vitae
