  • Before the Job:When you’ve decided what you want to be, you have to come to the realization you will not get your dream job right away. So you have to decide what skills you have and what skills you need to get there.What work experience do you have, what other skills have you acquired?Who do you know? Are you involved in any organizations or non-profits, who are the community big shots in those as well? You will need them! Also, what are people saying about you? Word travels fast and it’s a small world are popular saying for a reason.What skills are you lacking that you’ll need in your dream job or in the steps to it?
  • As long as you can still do it efficiently, give them more than they asked for. If they want you to do the budget, create graphs that will help them tell the story. They want you to create a communication piece on a software change, add pictures to help employees understand. Know what they want and why so you can always give them what they need before they know they need it!Find out what the culture at your company is…. Not disagreeing with managers, against change, in competition with others
  • These Gen Y stereotypes can hold you back.
