Career Advancement - What You Haven't Been Told

Posted by Brian Spence on Jun 24, 2020 4:00:00 PM

Career AdviceWhether in college, from others in your chosen profession, or from your parents, you've probably gotten a lot of career advice. Yet, a Forbes article last year shared some important career advice that you've likely never heard before. According to the article, there are five things that you should focus on to make your career meaningful.

Find a Job that Creates Impact

Making life better for those around you is going to make you take pride in your work and make you feel like you are doing something important. It could be something as simple as creating a product that's superior to the one your competitors use or even just having great customer service.

Don't Limit Your Career Opportunities

If you find that you don't love your job, go for something else. Just because you had a specific college major does not mean that you must go the traditional route. If something else draws you in, don't be afraid to take another route and allow yourself to grow.

Be the Go-to Person for "That"

If something interests you, learn all you can about it. Then others will seek your advice and knowledge concerning that topic.

Treat Everyone with Respect

No matter where you are in the company, you likely had to start from the bottom. Everyone deserves respect. As you move up, gaining more money and responsibility, continue to treat those under you (as well as those above you) with the same respect that you would want from them. Respect goes a long way, and as you respect others, many of them will show you respect as well.

Be a Do-er. Not a Talk-er.

You've likely heard the saying: Actions speak louder than words. Working hard and following through with what you say you are going to do will afford you respect from others and help you to feel good about what you've achieved.
