3 Different Things to Do When You Get a New Job

iQuanti: Congratulations on your new job! Now that the pressure of the interview is behind you and you’ve told all your friends and family the good news, it’s time to start thinking about how you can take advantage of this opportunity to continue building a better life for yourself and your family.  
This process often involves revising your budget based on your new earnings, and protecting your new income and lifestyle with life insurance.  
1. Make a new budget 
With new jobs often comes new income–what do you want to do with it? Making a budget can help you get a sense of how you’d like to improve your lifestyle, invest in your future, or provide more for your family.   
Think about what kind of financial goals you have and how soon you want to reach them. Making a budget will help you get a sense of what your financial priorities are and how to consciously prioritize your spending to meet those goals. 
2. Improve your health 
If you were putting off the gym or a healthier diet before, now is a great time to decide how much you want to make health a priority. Making these changes alongside your new job can help you solidify new habits.  
See if you can find a gym near work, and look out for which restaurants and cafes near you have healthy options for lunch. Maybe some of your new co-workers will like to join you, and you can develop healthier habits together.  
3. Review your life insurance coverage 
While you’re thinking of all the ways you want to provide more for your family, it’s also important to make sure they are taken care of in case something happens to you.  
When taking a new job, it’s important to make sure your life insurance coverage is a good fit for your new salary expectations and lifestyle. Life insurance essentially guarantees that if something happens to you, your beneficiaries who depend on your income will be able to continue enjoying the same quality of life that you provided for them. Different employers offer different life insurance coverage, so this is important to review as you transition. 
Term life insurance protects your income for a temporary period of time, whereas permanent life insurance will give you lifelong coverage and guarantee that you will pass on a legacy to your beneficiaries. 
If you’re interested in a permanent life insurance option, take a look at the life insurance cash value chart if you can before buying.  
New job, new income, new you 
A new job is definitely worth celebrating, but the good news doesn’t end with you starting this new chapter in your life–it continues with the plans you make and follow through with. As you take the next steps forward in your career, don’t forget to think about how you can secure what you provide and build your legacy for the people who matter most to you.
