How To Prepare For A New Cloud & IT Infrastructure Role
Starting in a new position can be daunting.
The time between handing in your notice in your current employer and your first day in your new job is both exciting and nerve-wracking.
However there are some simple things you can do to set yourself up for success before you start.
Our Head of Delivery Jimmy Hearne has great insights into how you should prepare for a new Cloud & IT Infrastructure job:
“Starting a new job may be a nervous time, but there are a few things which I would do personally to mitigate against that.
1. Be thankful
Firstly I would always be thankful for the company from which I’m about to leave.
Even if things haven’t worked out how you would have hoped, they have still given you the opportunity and the path to move onto this new Cloud & IT Infrastructure job.
You might post a nice LinkedIn message to say thank you to your employer, or perhaps an internal email thanking them for the opportunity.
Never burn the bridges you’re about to walk over because you never know when you might need them again.
2. Do your research
Secondly you should do your research into the business you’re joining.
This includes looking at the team you’re about to join.
Are you able to talk to someone already in the team or someone else internally? If so, this is a great opportunity to get to know a day in the life of the business you’re about to join.
Make sure you’ve researched your new role. Do you know the role properly? Are you well acquainted enough with how it fits into the business?
These days a lot of businesses are enjoying, as we are as recruitment consultants, one-stage interviews. However, make sure you’re not missing any key information in this shorter recruitment process. Make sure you’re asking lots of questions, and find out if there’s any reading you can do beforehand. This will stand you in better stead for when you start your first day.
3. Treat yourself
Thirdly it’s important to look after yourself before you join.
Do you have a lucky tie, lucky socks or a lucky suit?
If not, you might want to think about buying a little something to impress on your first day.
It may seem silly, but the little things like this can make all the difference in how you prepare for your new role.”
