Students I hope that this word covid has honestly how covid treated you all probably we all grow as we experience new things in life. So maybe this is just an experience. Jaya is going to help us overcome those first 90 days and you are going to get those jobs and how you feel and how it is to hold on to that job with the very important after studying so much.
Ms Jaya acknowledged and thanked CREDAI-MCHI Women’s Wing team for giving this opportunity to conduct this workshop for students . As she feels very connected to this particular group of students because they are in the transition phase, moving from you will eventually in a year or two maybe not now but in a year or two you will move from where you are to you know doing a job and the job life is completely different from what we experienced in campus. So everything changes . So, how are we looking at life? This is a very good group that I always and passionately work for even in the company, a young talent management team. So I know what happens, what you think and you know all of that. So let’s get going.
First 90 Days at Workplace: Ms Jaya gives a brief introduction on the topic along with the presentation and few videos .
We are getting into a job. So you’ll be surprised. You’ll say why are we talking about jobs now? We are still in the Covid and we are still studying. As we go ahead we will quickly discover as to why we are talking of this and why did the team select this particular topic for the program, So this is basically based on the book written by Dr. Michael Watkins.It says basically the critical success strategies for new leaders at all levels .
So this is about me and my organization. Mine is a start-up and our you know, our main mission is to develop organization competencies and improve the productivity of the organization. We support organizations to handle the end-to-end life cycle of an employee. So what we intend is our objective for this one hour so you know how critical our first 90 days are to a new employee. How do we transition from being a student to becoming a professional because that is what is expected on the job.
What are the methods Trust me. It’s not rocket science. It is simple, but we should know as to how we should go about it so that we can transition smoothly and try avoid failing or you know looking at things like oh my God, I could not do this . What are some of the tools or methods that we can use and you know, this is what I have heard time and again and then I use to work. Everybody says that people should be able to unlearn and relearn because what we have, what we have learnt on campus and what we have on the books may not be the same when you go on a job. So for example, you have made some architectural designs and civil engineering designs. However, when you actually go to implement then you will realize oh my God, this figure was standing here. And now what I do, Sometimes pick up the best things from the books and also learn on the job. So that’s what we talked about developing an attitude of unlearn and relearn. So while navigating through now that we are into this, you know in the covid situation we are going through zoom webinars.
