Welcome to You Enterprises.
Being a team player is great and an important skill in the workplace. But for a few key issues, forget everyone else—you’ve got to be selfish if you want to see changes. That because at the end of the day, no one’s going to look out for you the way you look out for yourself.
Here are the three things you need to be the most selfish about:
You’ve read all the advice for writing a stellar resume. You’ve applied all the tips for great content. You’ve spent hours reviewing and perfecting it line by line. Friends have checked and double checked your spelling and grammar…
But you’re still not getting callbacks.
Is there anything else you do to improve your resume?
Here’s a good argument for waiting to figure out which career you want to pursue or what, exactly, you want to do with your life.
Scientists now say your brain is still developing well into your 30s, according to The Wall Street Journal. That means it might make sense to wait until then to make big life decisions, right?
Even though most people aren’t naive enough to expect their first job out of college to be a 24-7 party, many are undoubtedly surprised to find their first job so intolerable.
I too ended up in a job I hated, despite doing all the “right” things.
Fast forward to now. I made it through and you can too. Here’s what I learned about surviving a quarter-life crisis and how to find your dream job.
We all know those people. The ones who seem born to do what they do. The ones who can’t wait to get to work each day. This passion enables them to plow through life’s difficulties with raw, unbridled enthusiasm.
How did they land in these careers? And how can we follow in their footsteps?
Let’s get one thing straight first: “Follow your passion” is misleading. Even if it seems like certain people were destined to write, play golf or study the stars, it isn’t because they were born with these interests.
