Learning Center Experience
So, you are almost ready to begin your new career, and maybe you’ve
secured that first job already. Is there anything else you should be thinking
of beyond a resume and cover letter, or your new briefcase and professional
attire to start your new career journey?
Absolutely! You want to start off with proper expectations of the job.
Network, listen, and
learn. Networking has become a commonly used word in referencing what to do to drum
up business or look for a job. But you can also leverage your network for
insight on how to succeed in your profession. And you can never gain too much
insight. People will have different opinions about any given job or profession.
That breadth of perspectives can be very valuable to you.
At some point, many of us
think to ourselves, “I wish someone had told me that before.” Well, there is a
way to minimize those experiences, and that’s by putting yourself out there and
asking for advice. Identify people you know in the company you are working at
or aspire to work at, as well as individuals who have done that job before. Send
out an email or a message on LinkedIn. And remember to talk to as many people
as you can in your network, not just those you are certain have performed the
role before. Individuals change careers and may have experience in your field that
you may not be aware of. There can be a lot of value in speaking both to people
currently employed in your field and those who have left it.
Once you’ve identified
some people to speak with, ask that big, yet basic question: “What do you wish
someone would have told you about your job or career when you started?” You may
get varied opinions, but all should be considered. It’s up to you to discern
what advice will be most helpful to you. One blogger wrote about shifting
careers from teaching and provided some good advice on
what to expect in your first year in the classroom—advice she wished someone
had shared with her.
