Once you've gotten over the initial discomfort of starting a new position and becoming part of a new team, there may be a temptation to "settle in" prematurely. Your first 90 days offer you the opportunity to learn how to take advantage of the career-management tools that the Department of the Navy (DON) and HQMC offer you.
First, take advantage of the online programs that enable you to review and update your official record (as reflected on your SF-50 form): myBiz, myPay, and Total Workforce Management System (TWMS). All of these tools are CAC-enabled for ease of access.
Second, as you review your position records, take this opportunity to finalize the benefits for which you registerd in Onboarding Phase I. You have 90 Days from your EOD to make changes to your selected benefits. After that, most benefits can only be changed during "Open Season" (toward the end of the calendar year).
Finally, take this opportunity to review the many HQMC-funded training opportunities that are open to you. during this 90-day period, take the time to review your career goals, to research your options, and to establish and prioritize your "wish list." After discussing your future with your Supervisor, you'll have the chance to create a workable, short-term (1 year) plan -- your Individual Development Plan (IDP) that can serve to turn your wishes into realities.
