Best Anniversary Sale 2024

If you’re new in the workplace, creating a place for yourself will help you to find your feet and progress.

Every year, 11 million young people graduate from higher institutions of learning and only 3 million jobs are created, according to Junior Achievement Africa. As a new employee, aside from building your network, there are other factors that can distinguish you at the workplace.

Here are five ways to strengthen your chances in the workplace and in a new job:

1. Build Up Your Confidence

Having a good measure of confidence in your abilities can set you apart from others. When the opportunity comes to speak about your work or the value that you can bring to the organisation, Speak up. Be Curious. Ask Questions.

Confidence also grows from a positive mindset so always remember your past successes-they are your best elixirs.

2. Be Tech Ready

We are in a tech-driven world. Scratch that. You already know that. Most businesses leverage technology to stand out and so should you as an individual.

While you may not have all the requisite tech skills for the 21st workplace, it is essential for you to be ready to embrace or use new technology. You can teach yourself how to stay relevant in today’s digital environment with PMI’s Citizen Developer.

3. Go the Extra Mile

The workplace is demanding. Sometimes, you may need to put in extra hours to meet the deadlines. Deliver more than is expected with effort, dedication, and passion. Volunteer to take up more strategic tasks that would make you visible.

Be flexible; always ready to learn new things. Be empathetic and learn to understand and manage your boss or line manager’s emotions. Start a project. Be a project leader.

4. Be a Team Player

Team players are recognised for being dependable, flexible, and cooperative. Listen and speak up and contribute during meetings. You should be willing to absorb, understand and consider other people’s viewpoints and receive criticism without being defensive.

5. Personal Growth

As you focus on your strengths, it is also necessary to seek out opportunities to upskill in order to build competencies. As a new employee, you can tap into your workplace skills development programs to upskill.
