The Best Career Advice You'll Never Hear

Career, Job, Job Advice, Mentor, NetworkingYou've worked your way through school. You've learned all the specialized information you need to begin your dream job. You have even managed to land a job that you are really excited about, the next challenge will be how to thrive in the career you have chosen.

Many people will tell you to find a mentor at your job and do your best to gather wisdom from people who have gone before you.

However, there is some advice that people just don't give you.

If you want the inside scoop on the best ways to be succesful at work, you'll love Jessica Probus' Buzz Feed Life article "36 Career Tips No One Will Actually Tell You." Probus leaves it all on the table with blunt suggestions including,

  • "Sometimes it is better to share credit for something, even if you did most of the work."
  • "Ask your boss what their biggest problem is, and make it go away."
  • "Never, ever cook fish in the office microwave."
  • "If you need to gain favor with someone, ask for their advice."

These little gems represent the kind of knowledge someone intrinsically builds up after a lifetime in a career. Probus also suggests you never come off too busy, because people will avoid giving you new opportunities if they think you're swamped. She also reminds you that your best connections are the people who leave your workplace, because they will be able to introduce you to new job opportunities in the future.
