I used to impress every single interviewer and boss in the past with a 30-60-90 day plan. Even if you already have a job, having a 30-60-90 Day Plan at any time in your career will impress your boss. It’s a new year — time to level up and start building some street cred for when you ask for that raise, promotion, etc.

So what this entails is this:

What do you plan to do for them within…

  • the first 30 days
  • the first 60 days
  • the first 90 days

That’s it! It’s just an overview, not too detailed. Just enough actionable items to make you look like you know what you’re doing (because you do) but not too overly insane to keep you on the hook.

Plus, it will keep you accountable for when your boss really isn’t organized and doesn’t know what they’re doing to onboard you. I’ve been there. Lots of managers don’t know how to lead and it’s not 100% their fault. They were set up for failure when they took on the role.

So this plan will help you stay on track in your first 3 months and moreover if you’re in leadership, it will keep your team on track. It’s one of my many project management secrets!

Anyhow, the overview of my 30-60-90 day plan went like this:

Day 30

•Observe and Learn

Day 60

•Engage and Track

Day 90

•Act and Own

If you’d like my exact 30-60-90 day plan, you can have it here for only $5.00! I keep the price super low because I want you to succeed! I’m not getting rich off this stuff. It’s just for operational cost to help keep all this career advice as free and/or low cost as possible.

Also, here are some caveats:

  1. Big companies love this stuff – I, personally, would only do this for big companies — not super small companies who might get intimated or just don’t know what KPI even means. Startups might like this, but again, your call.
  2. Present this to the Hiring Manager, the Final Decision Maker — NOT the Recruiter or HR who do the initial screening. They don’t really care about these things. So maybe not the first interview, more like the 2nd, 3rd, or final interview?
  3. Know your audience. Use as necessary. Don’t use this tactic every single time. Not all hiring managers like this approach. Some might be insecure and intimidated by your approach. Others might be put off and think you’re being too much. Trust your gut.

Don’t forget about the Free Data Science Certificate Training taught by Harvard & MIT professors — apply, if you haven’t already!
