Let’s get started
Once a start date has been determined it is important to immediately start planning for your success. The information on this page is also available in a checklist. Both this site and the checklist are designed to help you have the best start possible.
Some things on this page and/or on the checklist may appear more than once and/or not all items may be applicable to all positions. If you have already completed them, check them off again as you move down the list. If you have questions regarding an item, ask your Manager/Supervisor.
