Are you in your 20’s? Just started working or still searching for a job? At this point in your life, you may think you know everything, but there are still many things that will surprise you. When most of us were in our 20s, we did not know as much as we thought. Over time, we learned – just as you will. To help you move forward a little faster, here are a few tips:
Money is important
What is your first salary or what was it? For those who already have a job, this does not apply. But for others, surprising as it may seem, you should negotiate even your first salary. From where you start your career has a significant impact on where you can take it. Remember all future appraisals will be based on this starting salary. So the more you can try to get right now, the better it will be for you in the future as well.
Once you are employed, as exceptional as your performance may be, you are probably not getting any huge bumps or increments in salary. But when you start, there is always a chance if you present yourself as a worthy candidate and use some negotiation tactics.
Put in effort
Are you impressed by the seniors at your organization? Do the amazing checks they receive every month and the benefits they are entitled to make you want to be like them?
Do not forget that when they started out, at that time, they might have put in a lot of effort. And that is just why they are where they are right now.
Your ideas can be just as great
So you think you cannot give great ideas and fear to voice your thoughts at work? That should not be if you want to climb the corporate ladder. Anyone can have a superb idea. It does not matter what your position is or what you do at work. Once you have an idea, you should share it in meetings and make sure your voice is heard.
Good job you will find, dream job you will not
We agree; you can find impressive jobs. But they will probably not be what you want them to be. Your dream job is something you may never find. The point is, if you are offered a job, take it if it seems good enough for now.
