From "Landing" to "Entry", How do newcomers successfully pass the probation period?

  Nowadays, fresh graduates are gradually entering the workplace and starting a new stage of life. However, in the face of the change from students to professionals, many newcomers in the workplace still feel anxious and confused, and the "probation period" has become an important stage for them to explore and grow. How to solve the job anxiety and successfully pass the probation period has become an important lesson for newcomers in the workplace.

  "I am very anxious every day now, afraid that I will not pass the probation period."

  After 1995, Lin Yuxin graduated with a master’s degree this year, and worked as an exhibition planner in a company in Xiamen. She joined the core business department as soon as she joined the company. She thought she could start from the basic work slowly, but she was caught off guard by the leader not long after joining the company. "Can I take over this project as a newcomer who has just joined the company for two months?" Lin Yuxin began to be anxious, fearing that her colleagues would be held back by her lack of ability.

  The commercial exhibition requires the curator to collect a large amount of information in the early stage, coordinate and communicate with all parties, and there are many things to consider. The brand-new process makes Lin Yuxin very unaccustomed. "No one has taken me, and the leader seems to acquiesce that I will know everything as soon as I come up."

  Bian Xiaoxiao from Shenzhen is also at a loss about his new job. After graduating from radio and television and working as a market planner in a foreign trade company, she found herself unfamiliar with the professional knowledge in many industries. "Colleagues like to use some English abbreviations when discussing. Sometimes I don’t understand them, and I am quite helpless."

  Not only that, Bian Xiao also felt the "peer pressure". Prior to this, she had been unable to enter the workplace because she had been preparing for the postgraduate entrance examination. In her view, her lack of experience in the workplace made her seem to be a lot behind her peers. "Especially when I encountered problems that I didn’t understand, I felt a lot of pressure when I saw other colleagues with ease."

  "I am very anxious every day now, afraid that I will not pass the probation period." Lin Yuxin felt that she didn’t finish the tasks assigned to her by the leaders these times. When I met problems I didn’t understand, I was embarrassed to ask my colleagues for help at first. "I used to brush intrigue videos in the workplace online, and I was worried that I would ask my colleagues for information, and people would think I wanted to steal their ideas."

  Bian Xiaoxiao also feels that she is still in a "student" state. Although her colleagues are very good, she still can’t get along with them freely. "I have to add a lot of qualified words to my speech, and I am afraid of offending everyone. I am also embarrassed to ask questions, for fear that everyone will think that I know nothing. "

  How do newcomers integrate into the collective as soon as possible during probation?

  How to integrate into the group as soon as possible during the probation period and learn to get along with new colleagues? In Douban’s help post, many newcomers in the workplace have raised their confusion about dealing with interpersonal relationships.

  Sui Boyu, a fresh graduate who works in Beijing, has been on probation for less than a month. Because she is introverted and not good at dealing with people, she often feels unable to integrate well. Recently, a new colleague came to the company, who is warm and helpful, and soon became a reliable "post-it note" in everyone’s mouth. "I think he is very brave. At least he took the initiative to take the first step." In Sui Boyu’s view, becoming a "post-it note" is also a way to quickly integrate into the collective.

  Bian Xiao feels that she is a typical "post-it girl", and she is willing to maintain the relationship with her colleagues by dealing with trivial matters in the workplace. She said that when I first came into contact with a new field, I always fell into the whirlpool of "self-doubt" when I encountered a difficult business. "Instead, doing some simple things will make me feel needed and get some psychological comfort."

  LinYu Xin believes that "post-it notes" will put yourself in a lower position, and it will be very difficult to improve later. "Even if you don’t have a very important project at the moment, you should use this time to improve yourself instead of helping your colleagues."

  Li Muzi, a senior human resources teacher with 10 years’ experience, believes that under the premise of not affecting his own work, he can establish good interpersonal relationships with his colleagues through some "easy work", otherwise, he should learn to refuse in time, "I am responsible for whoever I report to, or should I focus on my own work goals and results".

  If you don’t know how to refuse, you can exchange. For example, Li Muzi said, "If the other party asks you to print, you can ask the other party to help deliver the courier. If he wants me to help him, he might as well do it himself. "

  "You should learn to judge who wants you ‘ Give me a hand ’ , who is deliberately calling you. " Wang Lulu, a human resources division of an Internet company, said that if you don’t know how to refuse, it will not only occupy your own working time, but also make others find you. "This is a vicious circle".

  During the probation period, we will grow more directionally and purposefully.

  After being pointed out by the leader, Lin Yuxin felt that she could no longer be anxious. She tried to consult colleagues around her and found that colleagues answered patiently and would not mind being Xiao Bai. "If you have any questions, you must ask them boldly, so that colleagues can help you solve and correct them in time."

  In Li Muzi’s view, in addition to the qualities of being positive, optimistic and not complaining, and having strong learning ability, newcomers in the workplace also need to have the professional habit of "responding to everything and finding everything". When you encounter difficulties in your work, don’t be bored, and don’t wait until things are completely settled before telling the leader, "If you don’t talk about difficulties, you won’t be able to close the game in the end."

  Sui Boyu also found it difficult for her to communicate with leaders. When entering the workplace and knowing nothing, the leader often puts forward some requirements beyond her own ability; Sometimes leaving work on time will be criticized by the leaders for not reporting; Communication with leaders is often not smooth when reporting.

  When getting along with leaders, Li Muzi thinks that we should do two things well: First, learn to adapt to the style of leaders, determine the priority of reporting according to the priorities of leaders when explaining tasks, and give feedback for help in time when encountering problems; The second is to learn to adjust the expectations of leaders. For the tasks assigned by the leader and their results, we should communicate and confirm with him repeatedly, and at the same time evaluate our own ability to avoid the deviation of the leader’s cognition of our own ability.

  In view of several major problems that are most likely to occur for newcomers in the workplace during the probation period, Li Muzi made suggestions:

  First of all, we should change the identity of students and change "passive learning" into "active learning". Don’t ask questions without thinking, but ask questions on the basis of understanding and learning.

  Secondly, it is necessary to make clear the evaluation standard of probation period, preferably in writing or email, and pay attention to leaving marks in the work.

  Third, we should discover the value of work and set an example in the workplace. Understand what problems are solved behind your work, grow with more direction and goals, and help yourself get the corresponding work results.

  Finally, we should improve our ability to withstand pressure, and at the same time, we should skillfully reject some unimportant matters and focus on the output of work results.

  In order to relieve anxiety, Bian Xiao chose to exercise and relax after work and share his feelings with his family and friends. In her spare time, she will also attend some trade salons and exhibitions to learn professional knowledge. "I think the probation period is more like a two-way choice. It will give you a preliminary understanding of what the company is doing, what your future development is like, and make a realistic plan in your mind. For the company, it will also consider whether you are suitable for this job. " Bian Xiao feels that if he enters a formal working period from the beginning, he will feel even more stressed.

  Wang Lulu said that at work, we should try our best to do what we like and are good at. "Work has occupied our lives for too long. Doing what we are good at may sometimes be very tiring, but you will enjoy the process." She also suggested that newcomers in the workplace should not "overdraw" their bodies as soon as they start, but should know how to "keep flowing". "Many potentials break out in the middle and late stages. If they are too tight in the early stage, they will have no strength in the competition in the later stage."
