Sometimes even though people know the truth about building a successful career, they still choose the other way because it is less complicated and not that difficult. However, such an approach often doesn't solve real problems and results in a run-of-the-mill career. During 2014 we have shared many professional recommendations on how to develop one's resume, succeed during an interview, or build a career that you would be proud of. Today we would like to highlight those career recommendations that we have never talked about; usually, people don't know about them. These aren't all tips we would like to focus on, only those which we think can lead to the poor or mediocre career at best. We wish our readers and customers to be more than that.
3 Important Career Tips
How do people think they can achieve success at their workplaces? Most of them start at the base point - they say you have to do your job well and the success will come sooner or later. While we agree with the fact that it is important to do your job well we can't say it is enough to earn a promotion or even grow professionally. If you are excellent at your job it means an employer made the right choice and you are a good match for the position. Why replace you with someone else and give you more responsibilities. In order to make the professional leap, you have to do more - to deliver value to the company in ways that you are not required. Employers love employees who don't need to be constantly told what to do and when to do. An initiative that brings value to the company will be able to get you right on the right path. In order to achieve this many believe one has to spend endless hours without having a minute of rest.
By creating an image of an always busy worker you won't be able to achieve much because working hours by themselves aren't the indicators of anything. The more you appear frazzled and busy, the more employers will think that you wouldn't be able to take on new responsibilities and as a result would miss new opportunities. Keep in mind that it is about how efficient you are, not only how many hours you devote to doing your job. Now as we have settled the issues of efficiency and initiative there is one more thing that might hinder a successful career. It is who you work for and with whom do you work. Even on your resume, the name of your employer could give you more benefits than what you did for that employer. Working for companies that have established reputation will give you more opportunities for professional development and growth. Creating for yourself an environment that will facilitate your career progression is something you can actually plan and target for.
