How to Make an Amazing Impression on
Your First Boss

You are going to have a entirely different relationship with your boss than you do with your professors. Your first boss will expect you to show up on time, stay late, and produce information and reports when they ask. No exceptions!

If you are looking for rapid advancement and salary increases it will be critically important to overperform in your first 100 days.

Joyce will focus on three strategies to help you accomplish that:

  • Use your academic skills to learn and deepen your knowledge about your company
  • Be an outstanding team member, and learn how to succeed together
  • Set six month, one year and three year goals, and be accountable to yourself

The average graduate transitions out of their first professional job within 1-2 years and has to start all over again in the next job. Joyce will give you insights and confidence that will help you determine if your first job is a good fit, or excel wherever you land and at whatever you tackle!
