NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- First impressions matter, and so do your first few weeks in a new job. It's never too early to let your boss know that hiring you was the best decision they ever made. Here are the top 10 ways to win over your boss in your first 30 days on the job.
1. Learn to anticipate your boss' needs
Pay attention to your boss' day and see where they may need help, suggests Julie Hochheiser Ilkovich, career expert and co-founder of Masthead Media.
"If your boss has a meeting every Tuesday morning at 9 and you notice that they're always late getting coffee, volunteer to pick up their coffee that day," she says. "You'll be amazed how much credit you can earn just by giving your boss what they need before they realize they need it."
By figuring out how your boss likes to operate, you establish trust early on, says Joe Ungemah, vice president of talent solutions at CEB.
"Every time you can anticipate a need, you're decreasing your boss' stress level and strengthening your relationship," he says.
2. Figure things out for yourself
Try to understand all daily tasks and projects before you go to your boss with a million questions, Hochheiser Ilkovich suggests. Your boss doesn't want to feel like they're doing your work for you.
"Many managers' biggest complaints are that employees interrupt them all day popping into their office or asking questions via email," she says. "A lot of what you're curious about can be figured out on your own, or by asking someone else."
