Recently I had a conversation about what does it mean to start at a new company.
It seems that the bigger the company, the more critical seniority is.
But is there a way for a new hire to become relevant to the company quickly?
The advantage of a new hire is precisely that. You are not aligned with the mindset of the company… yet. All the experience, vision, and understanding of your profession are worth more than competing with an existing employee with more years of experience inside the company.
So, as a new hire, you need to find colleagues with the biggest seniority and try to learn from them while bringing the “outside” perspective into discussions.
And this is a fine line, really hard to execute, especially getting the trust from the peers.
So, the way I did it is to plan the first 90 days right.
