Launch & Grow

Your preparation has paid off. The time has come to launch your new role and make an impact. Use your onboarding as an opportunity to continue your growth and set yourself up for success.

As you prepare for your next steps, Daniels School career coaches are an excellent resource to turn to. In addition to their wealth of career knowledge, they can provide specific advice for your first 90 days in a new role.

Accelerate learning by asking questions and developing relationships with those around you, especially as you are learning the company culture.

Negotiate success by clarifying what is expected of you early on and establishing what you expect of others.

Secure early wins by seeking out opportunities to exceed expectations. Don’t overwork yourself and choose wins that align with company values.


“My biggest takeaway from my business school experience is learning how to transfer my knowledge to real-life business scenarios. To learn about skills and approaches is not enough to be able to use those skills. My professors were determined to teach us about practical applications of our knowledge and how to efficiently communicate technical results in business terms.”

Zainab Aljaroudi, MSBAIM '22
