Ad description

Moving from school to the labour force, can be quite challenging, the expectation is high, the vision is clear and you just want to implement your knowledge in a new environment. Here are the steps to help you transition smoothly in your first employment.A workday is quite different than a school dayWorking nine plus hours each day takes some getting used to, so don’t expect to be able to go out with friends several nights during the week and still be productive at work. Create Healthy work habits early on, which will contribute to career success. Eat well, get enough sleep, and maximize your free time to keep a work-life balance.Don’t get comfortable in the routine and keep challenging yourselfEvery job has some element of repetition and chances are, you’ll find yourself bored or unchallenged at work (yes, it happens to everyone at some point). If this happens, talk to your leaders about taking on additional assignments, get involved in professional development activities, or look for other ways to expand your involvement with your organization. One of the most effective ways to grow as a professional, even at your first job, is to take on things that you haven’t done before or that make you uncomfortable trying.Your MBA does not guarantee anythingYour advanced degree doesn’t mean you won’t do any “grunt” work. An entitled attitude is a surefire way to alienate your coworkers. Be willing to help out the team, whatever the task may be.Your first job will not be your last jobYour parents may have spent their entire careers with one company, but that’s now the exception rather than the rule. Don’t fall in love with your first job or company because it’s unlikely that you’ll spend your entire career there. What’s more, always be planning for your next job. In our fast paced world, you may suddenly find yourself wanting to move on, or your company may hit hard times and face layoffs, so it’s important to always be thinking about your next move, even if you enjoy your current position.That “dream job” probably won’t happen right away, be patientRome wasn’t built in a day, and your career won’t be either. With challenging macroeconomic and demographic factors here in the United States and with people living longer, many of us will work into our 60’s or even 70’s. If you’re 23 or 24 and just starting at your first job, you’ve got 40+ years of work ahead of you. It’s a marathon, not a sprint.Remember, you won’t last long in a job or company that conflicts with your morals and values or a job that doesn’t motivate you. Make sure you consider these personality traits before accepting a new job, and continuously.
