It can be difficult to know the information you need to create a company-specific 30-60-90-Day Plan because you haven’t worked there before, but you must be as specific as possible.

Here are 5 places to find the information you need for your 30-60-90-Day Plan:

1. Google

Your first step should be to Google the company. Find out if they’ve been mentioned in the news recently, or if they have any press releases. Do they have big projects or plans for growth? What direction do they seem to be going in?

2. The Corporate Website

Your next stop should be the company’s website. You can learn their size, location, products or services, mission, and a lot more there. They may even have a blog, which you should absolutely check out.

3. Twitter

The company may have its own Twitter account, but you also should be able to find company employees on Twitter. You can create a private list and follow the company, employees, and even the company’s competition.

4. Facebook

The company may have its own Facebook page. Corporate Facebook pages are usually much less formal than the corporate website, so you will get different kinds of information there. Facebook also has groups, so you may be able to check those out for either employee groups or industry groups that may mention your company. Also, don’t forget to ask your Facebook friends if they or anyone they know works or worked for that company. Maybe you can message that person directly and ask questions that will help you fill out your plan with the right information.

5. LinkedIn

Companies also often have their own LinkedIn profile pages. All social media pages should be less formal than the corporate website, and more informative. You are more likely to find company employees (past and present) on LinkedIn. You may be able to message them directly, or someone in your network may be able to provide an introduction. Ask them to help fill you in on the company. You can also ask your groups. Group discussions are a great resource for you, so look at past discussions and comments as well as generating questions of your own. If you need more help finding information or knowing what you’re looking for, get my proven 30-60-90-Day Plan with coaching on how to write a specific plan and incorporate it into your interview.

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.
