Hi all, let’s talk onboarding. I’m in a spot where onboarding is left completely on me as a new employee in a tech company and have no clue what questions I should ask. Not knowing anything about a company, what are some common questions you ask so that you can get caught up to speed quickly?

hmm. I start asking to throw time on peoples calendar to shadow some people on your team? or shadowing the tasks that you can pick up and build from there? hope this helps : )

If you’re in management you really don’t wanna show ineptitude by shadowing other managers. You should already know how to do your job. Shadowing is only at the IC level. What would help you is to set up one on one meetings with your direct reports to learn their workflows, products they develop/support, and current/future projects.

This question depends on a lot of factors…first of all what’s the field and are you familiar? I know some Customer Success Directors for example commonly switch fields. When you say onboarding, do you mean in the sense of having to train yourself? What steps have you taken thus far?

Shadowing someone who does the same as you on your team for a week or two should get the ball rolling! Also review your job title and what is expected of you and take it above and beyond. Good luck!

I’m an EA, I was working for a tech startup and got thrown into onboarding and recruitment as well. I started with a basic deck gathering info from current employees on the mission vision values and product. Then I would introduce the company org and who to contact for what. Create a first week schedule with 1:1s who they should meet with for their first week: their direct manager, their team members in that specific department, hr, go over travel and expense policies, IT needs and programs they’d need to set up. Etc etc basic things you would probably want to know on your first day. I hope this helps!

I may have read the initial question wrong. But if they have not set up onboarding for you I would reach out directly to your manager if you should meet with anyone from your team and what are the company priorities and how does that fit into your role. 1:1 meetings will help to start getting a sense of what’s been going on and what needs to be done.

I applied to work for my dream company as an EA and the interview process was going well. They loved me but did not think I was a good fit for the role I applied for. They did however think I would be a good fit for another role opening up in a few weeks. I expressed that I was open to the role but I have not heard back since. It has been about a month. Should I give up on my dream company or trust the process? I have reached out twice so far.

If you work in tech your skills are in demand. We have a choice about where we work. If your employer is more evil than the average corporation that’s on you. Figure out the companies you refuse to work for on ethical grounds before you start looking for a job. It may feel like limiting your opportunities, but most of the time a company doing bad things in the world is going to have an unpleasant internal culture to match.
