After starter changed, ticking noise appeared. What could it be? on 1996 Jeep Cherokee

Recently I had the starter changed. After, there was a ticking coming from under the hood. I was afraid it was the motor, but I think I have determined that's not it. The belt also squeals terribly when I start it and the squealing has begun to last longer. Could the 2 be related and what could the problem be?
