Show that you have the skills.
Strive to improve your skills.
Seek ways to learn new skills.

Your Job
Over-deliver, over-communicate, build trust.
Don’t try to learn everything…prioritize your learning to 3-5 core responsibilities.
Figure out how you will be measured…if you’re unclear, work with your manager to write down your responsibilities and how they will be measured.
Get to know the people on your team and your cross-functional partners.
Ask lots of questions. When you're new, you can meet anyone and ask anything.
Invest in the relationship with your manager, and figure out how they are measured.
Figure out what is expected on the job (hours, travel, uncertainty of schedule), and put together a plan to make this work at home.
Work hard, but don’t stay at the office late. If you need to work extra to deliver exceptional results, then do it at home. The goal is to deliver output, not show input.
Make sure you like what you’re doing, and you enjoy the people you’re working with.
Be ready for a brief interaction with a senior executive. Create an elevator pitch on the relevance of your role, what you’re working on, and how it fits into the broader business unit strategy and company mission.
Have the “career goals conversation” with your manager around month six. Share your feelings about working at the company long term, and how you want to grow professionally.
What does it mean to over-communicate?

What should you do if you don’t know what your expectations are or how you are measured?
