Describe the purpose of your book in a few sentences.
The book, "Starting a New Job," is aimed at providing a road map to career success in your new role in any industry. This book provides a detailed breakdown of some proven techniques used by new employees who seek to attain success within their first 90 days of employment. It also includes a year-long career advancement success plan.  

What inspired you to write a book on how to successfully start a new job?
Working with my coaching clients, I realized they did not have strategies on how to succeed in starting a new job in the first 90 days of employment.  I decided to write a book that will give my clients and new employees proven methods to succeed. 

Who do you think would most benefit from reading this book?
I believe that this book will be indispensable to recent college graduates and experienced professionals with starting a new job.

What are some common mistakes that people make when starting a new job, and how does it affect their chances of promotion?
During the first 90 days, some of the common mistakes new employees make are: 
• A lack of a clearly defined idea of success.
• Failure to solicit feedback about their job performance from their manager.
• Failure to build quality relationships with team members.
• Failure to go above and beyond their job duties.
• Failure to learn (memorize) the rules and regulations of the organization.
• Failure to learn about the products or services the company provides.
• Failure to observe and learn about the company culture.
• Failure to build a good working relationship with their manager.

One of the themes in your book is that getting a new job can be easier than keeping it. Why is this?
It’s easier to get a job because during your job search you have a clearly defined plan of action; however, once you get hired, in most cases, new employees do not have a plan for success during their first 90 days of employment.  

A major theme of the book is that employers are constantly assessing a newly hired employee’s performance. What are some things they look for?
An employer looks at a new employee’s job performance, quality of work, attitude, time management, productivity, and soft skills. How a new employee’s success is measured will be communicated by their manager.

You talk about the importance of having good habits for successful employees. What are some habits that a newly hired employee should incorporate into their work routine?
Great habits new employees should take up to be successful are:
• Go above and beyond in the workplace.
• Request additional responsibilities.
• Embrace leadership roles.
• Be a team player.
• Be a hard worker.
• Set realistic goals.

While writing this book and revisiting your work experiences, did you see anything from a new perspective?
Yes, to achieve career success starting a new job it’s essential to categorize and set goals in the areas of work performance, employee initiative, and personal development to maintain clarity and focus on achieving career success.
