21 Life Pro Tips That’ll Help You Hack Your Career:

  1. Asking a lot of questions on your first day/week/month of a job shows initiative. The longer you stay quiet, the harder it gets to ask for someone’s help.

 

  1. If a co-worker has been out for an extended time due to illness or surgery tell them “It’s great to have you back!” instead of asking “How are you feeling?” It makes the transition easier and keeps them from feeling pity.

 

  1. Keep a separate copy of your master resume with all previous work experience. While sending out your resume for application, duplicate the file and remove anything that may be irrelevant to the position. You never know when some past job experience might become relevant again, and you don’t want to forget about it.

 

  1. To all young teenagers looking for their first job, do not have your parents speak or apply for you. There’s always a certain respect seeing a kid get a job for themselves.

 

  1. Employers place “entry level” in job titles to trick candidates into accepting less pay. If the “entry level” job needs you to have significant experience, demand more than starting pay.

 

  1. If you make a mistake, admit to it, apologize, and explain to them what steps you’ll take to prevent it from happening again in the future. it’s extremely hard for people to yell at you if you have done that.

 

  1. An argument is when you are trying to determine WHO is right, a conversation is when you are trying to determine WHAT is right.

 

  1. Don’t undervalue yourself when deciding whether or not to apply for a new job. It’s up to the person doing the hiring to determine if you’re what they are searching for, and the only way to guarantee that you will not get the job is that if you do not apply for it.

 

  1. At work, when a new task comes up, use this rule: if it takes but five minutes, do it quickly. If it takes but twenty minutes, do it right after your current task. If it takes longer than twenty minutes, schedule the task for later. you will prevent a piling of small tasks or forgetting.

Yes, I know, this would not work for each job. except for those who find it useful, I hope it helps.

 

  1. If there aren’t any possibilities for job growth or improvement – it is time to move on. you’re worth more the more you learn. Otherwise, you’re getting paid less the more you know.

 

  1. After college, once you get the first job, start looking for a far better job after a year or 2. Do not stay out of loyalty.

 

  1. Instead of saying “I don’t know” when your boss asks you a question say “I’ll find out or check it out.” it will make them respect you more.

 

  1. If you have to pay a company to work for them, it’s a scam. Walk away.

 

  1. When resigning from an organization, do not tell one person till your management has acknowledged and accepted it.

  1. Be very cautious when working with recruiters, they’re not your friend and many won’t hesitate to exploit you.

 

  1. The perfect job isn’t one where you do not have to do something you don’t want to do, it’s one where doing the things you do not want to do are worth it.

 

  1. Whenever you’re giving a presentation to a large group, clear up the desktop clutter and keep a generic desktop wallpaper. There can be moments where you will have to switch out of your presentation and browse for files, and unknowingly show your desktop. Desktops create impressions.

 

  1. In a new job, anyone asks you if you recognize something? Say “Not yet” rather than “no” or “I don’t know”. saying this may make you look more eager to learn rather than probably showing unmotivated.

 

  1. When in a professional environment, keep everything documented one or the other way. You will save yourself from a lot of drama or mess in the future.

 

For e.g.

  • Approving leaves
  • Taking over a task from someone while they are out or on break.
  • Giving a task to someone while we are in hurry.
  • Taking over one more role or profile to help and please the boss.
  • Not following policies because someone said it doesn’t matter. Nobody cares. Etc.


Solution: make sure you keep things in email or chat. It is not important to keep others in email, just keep it to yourself and that person.

 

  1. Just because you got your first well paying job doesn’t mean you need that $600 a month car loan. Save the cash and find something that gets you from point A to point B.
