Remember These Four Words
“Be positive, principled, pro-active, and productive”.Rakesh N.
Consider this job a journey to learn about yourself. The purpose is to grow as a human being; to discover what you’re good at, what you love to do, and what you dislike.
Discover your why, and you’ll become happier and more passionate in life!Carol L.
Be Open to Change
Don’t get discouraged when a job you really want does not pan out for you. It just opens up doors to other opportunities.Mitchell M.
Don’t Hide From Mistakes
Be honest. Not sure about something? Ask questions. Screwed up? Own up!
I’ve always valued someone willing to learn, and we do that in different ways. I’ll always highly regard someone willing to be honest about their mistakes because we learn from those just as much as our successes!Samantha D. M.
Keep Moving Forward
Learn to hear feedback and never let it fester. Instead consider it, take what works, and move on.Heather J.
Learn From Everything
Remember every moment is an opportunity to learn from everyone around you, no matter their title.
Pay attention when things go well; pay extra attention when they don’t, and watch how people react to it. Build relationships with the people who face problems by being their solution.Anita S.
Your biggest asset is your network.Eddie M.
Networking + Resilience = Success
It won’t be easy but you have to start somewhere. This is just the first step on the stairwell, so don’t give up, and know that the best is yet to come!L. Nicole
Utilize Your Co-workers
Don’t be intimidated by your colleagues and superiors!
Remember that they were once in your shoes when they began their careers. Leverage their knowledge and experience and find ways to take what worked for them and adapt it to work for you.Lauren L.
Treat Everyone With Respect
Speak when you walk into the office everyday. Say good morning to your boss and peers as you walk past their offices, smile at janitors and receptionists in your office.
Don’t be so focused on getting ahead that it’s all business all the time. Treating people with humanity and integrity is most important.Brittany K.
Keep Your Own Counsel
Don’t assume that a co-worker won’t repeat your criticisms of a colleague. When asked how you feel about individuals in the office, be open and vague with your answers.
Always reserve judgment on your co-workers until you have enough time to make up your own mind.Nicholas G.
Prepare for the Future
Develop good time management habits early on. Your workload will only increase with time, and so will your responsibilities. Be ready when they do.Alicia M.
