First of all, make sure that you are holding up your end of the bargain by doing the best job that you can for your company. Most employers hold reviews after a few months on the job to establish that things are going well. After that, reviews usually are conducted annually. Make sure that your employer is happy with your work and that your work is consistent with their requirements.
Most of us will change careers several times in the course of our adult lives. Once you have established yourself at your new job, it’s a good time to think about what other goals you have. This is a great time to pursue continuing education and have it be paid for by your employer. Employers are looking for people who will do a great job for them for many years, and many employers offer scholarships so that they can keep those employees as they grow and expand their interests and abilities. Talk to your supervisor about what additional certifications, awards, or volunteer opportunities there are that may lead you to new challenges and better positions within the company.
