To really shine in the interview, you want to blow the hiring manager away with your focus, energy, initiative and dedication right from the start.  The 30/60/90-day plan is the way to do that. In this article, I'll give you a few examples of a good 30-60-90-Day Plan for sales, management, and technical job interviews.

For most jobs, the first 30 days of your plan primarily focuses on training–learning the company systems, products, and customers.  Usually, the next 30 days (the 60-day part) focus more on getting rolling, which means less training and more activity. Often, the last 30 days (the 90-day part) are the “getting settled” part. Because of that, this section should include things that take more initiative, such as handling projects on your own or going after new business.

Here are just a few examples of how this looks in 3 different areas…sales, management-level jobs, and technical jobs.
