Here is one of the tools I normally use during interview coaching sessions with clients, it is one of the greatest interview winning strategies- the 30–60–90 DAY PLAN.
The 30–60–90 Day Plan is a document prepared by a job seeker and presented during an interview.
FORMAT OF THE PLANThe Plan can be presented in any of the following formats. PRESENTATION STYLESuggested contents of each page/slide; Page/Slide- Introduction page with candidate’s personal details (OPTIONAL)Page/Slide 1: Step-by-Step action plan on how to accelerate the learning process for the first 30 days.
Page/Slide 2: Step-by-Step action plan on how the candidate intends to identify and evaluate short/long term improvement areas for the 60 days. It all depend on how best the candidate can use Chart, Tables, Smart Art Graphics or Pictures to aid presentation.
It is an outline of what the candidate intends or proposes to achieve in the first 90 days, if hired for the role.
The 30–60–90-day plan is not just a tool used during an interview, it is a strategy document that every professional should write or develop before taking up a new role.It then means that the majority of the things-to-do should fall along the lines of attending training sessions, gaining and mastering product knowledge, learning major corporate systems, meeting the members of his team, and reviewing company accounts.Essentially, it entails doing all the things one needs to do to get his bearings on the job.The 60-day plan should also include items such as identifying potential mentors, evaluating the efficiency of the company’s processes and procedures, and continuing training.Generally, the second 30 days are about putting what the worker learned (during the first 30 days) into action.For the first month or so, the employee should focus on training and learning the basics of the company.It includes the company’s systems, procedures that should be adhered to, , software, vendors and/or clients.Putting a 30-60-90 plan together requires a bit of research.However, investing one’s time and effort into it pays off big time for the individual.Not every company is able to provide New employee orientation is an assimilation process in which new recruits are introduced to their jobs and work environment.Through orientation, new employees become acclimatized to the company, their department, fellow workers, and job requirements. So, if the new worker demonstrates his ability to get up to speed all on his own, the better.
