Your First Three Months

  • Start Thinking About Performance Feedback - Performance Management is more than an annual appraisal. It’s a year-round process designed to help you achieve your highest potential in your role at Lehigh. Learn about the Lehigh Performance Review process. 

  • Meet With Your Supervisor – Sit down with your direct supervisor at least every 1-2 weeks. At 90 days you are half-way through your provisional period. Ask for an informal performance review. Print out a copy of your position description to confirm what's been accomplished and what still needs to get done. Review progress on assignments, projects, and goals. Address any questions regarding:

    • Department processes, procedures, and resources
    • Job duties and responsibilities
    • Progress on goals, projects, and assignments
    • Performance expectations
    • Training/development activities
  • Network Network Network – Continue to broaden your network of contacts. Participate in as many opportunities to meet new people as possible, from career enrichment program to the Turkey Trot (photo above). See our Engage Lehigh page for suggestions.
