Your Onboarding experience continues for the full first 12 months of your time with your new agency. Some HQMC organizations take the occasion of your first anniversary as a moment to celebrate your transition into an "old timer" on the team. Until that time, your team and you will be continuously reevaluating each other and making adjustments to ensure that you maintain a happy and productive working relationship.
You may be offered the opportunity to participate in a survey so that your leadership can better evaluate your experience (and make emprovements that will benefit those who come after you). However, even without the survey, you will be experiencing your first mid-term evaluation. This is a formal opportunity for you and your Supervisor to evaluate your progress toward the critical elements you undertood during Phase 3.
There are two additional programs with which you should become familiar: the Marine Corps Civilian Leadership Development Program (MCCLDP) and the Marine Corps Communities of Interest (COI). The MCCLDP is designed to help you advance toward positions of leadership as a Civilian Marine, while the COI assist you to develop core competencies in your field. Take this opportunity during Phase 5 to explore both of these programs.
