Top 10 Job Advice

8 Jun

1. Do not wait until your yearly performance review for a review of your performance. If your not meeting the standards you want to know as soon as possible. The earlier you know the quicker you can fix the problem. Also, your boss will admire your desire to do well.

2. Ask for a review of your performance routinely. If your company does a performance review once a year , I would check in every few months for some advice. At my company every month you meet with your manager.  My place of employment is big on meeting quotas each week  and I seek a review every week.

3. Take personal initiative do not expect your supervisor to come to you when there is a problem. Your are not the only person in the office they have to worry about. Watch your own butt.

4. Trust your instincts,

5, Be friendly at work but do not be everyone’s friend.

6. You want people to respect you not like you. People come to work with the intention of being liked. I can like you but think you suck at your job. However, I want to respect you because your great at your job.

7. If your job is not your career spend as much time out of work focusing on how to get to next level. If you have 40 hours dedicated to work when will you have time to find your passion?

8. You are in control your own performance. Eat foods that give you energy, look your best and go to bed early.

9. Do not sweat the small stuff. Sometimes issues arise and it is just a learning lesson not a blemish or a reflection of your performance.

10. If you can excel in your current position you will be rewarded. If you cannot excel find something that you can. Find something that you can be the best at. When you are the best you get the best.
