    I would add:

    7. Be visible – Make sure you speak up in meetings. Don’t be a wallflower. Be confident, they hired you for a reason.

    8. Question the Status Quo – I love it when new employees challenge the way we do things. A new perspective can help you find new efficiencies.

    Great post!

      Great suggestions, especially the wall flower comment. Too often people don\’t speak up and lose the advantage of being the new person. Thanks for the comment and suggestion!

    Everyone you meet on the elevator (or elsewhere) is important, everyone.

    You know those technical skills you exhibited to get the job offer? They are getting out-dated already-keep working on them and/or figure out what new thing you will need by the end of the year.

    Don’t just own up to your mistakes. Explain how you are making sure they won’t happen again. That’s the difference between being seen as incompetent and being seen as someone who is constantly making themselves a better asset for the business.
