As a new hire, you may not know everything about your firm’s procedures. As such, you need to be prepared to ask questions and get as much information as you can. This is where finding a mentor can be beneficial. This mentor could be a formal member of the firm hierarchy or an informal advisor who has a long history with the institution. A mentor can help you build relationships and increase your learning curve.
Five reasons why you are a rookie in NASCAR
Rookies in NASCAR Cup Series are able to finish most of the races on their schedule and achieve decent standing in driver points despite their inexperience. Rookies are expected to do their homework and learn about the sport in order to succeed in the top division. This is particularly true in the Daytona 500, which is the first race of the season and one of the biggest races in the entire racing calendar. There are few rookies who have won the Daytona 500, but there are some who make the cut.
In 2011 there was a rule change that made it easier for aspiring Cup drivers to be Rookie of the Year candidates. Before 2011, drivers could race for points but sacrificed future eligibility in order to become Rookie of the Year candidates. Brad Keselowski, for example, ran 15 races in 2009, including the Talladega race. Carl Edwards ran 13 races in 2004 and Marcos Ambrose ran 11 in 2008.
The next generation of NASCAR cars has been introduced this season. These cars feature independent front and rear suspensions and have a five-speed sequential transmission. They also have a new underwing.
How to use your position as a rookie to ask questions
It’s a good idea to ask questions during the first few months of a new job. It’s important to assume that you have no knowledge of the firm’s procedures, so ask questions when you have a problem or don’t understand something. This will help you develop a reputation as a hard worker and show your team and managers that you are eager to learn. However, be sure to avoid having a “know-it-all” attitude and find a tactful way to ask questions. The combination of knowledge and initiative is a winning combination.
