10 CAREER SUCCESS PRINCIPLES

10 CAREER SUCCESS PRINCIPLES

Success is the attainment of a set goal or achieving an action within a specified period of time. The definition of career success is very personal to an individual. An accountant’s definition of success would be quite different from a farmer’s definition of success. To be successful in your career, you will need to define what success means to you in your chosen career. Whatever definition you come up with, there are principles to live by, if you must attain career success.

Here’s a list of 10 of them:

career success principles

Do what you can, with what you have, from where you are today.

Be Patient. Don’t rush things

career success principles

It is all about baby steps and imperfect actions.

Don’t focus on hating your current job, be grateful for it.

A lot of people are wishing your job was theirs, cherish your job and hold on to it. Treat your current job and life as your dream job to create the life you want.

Energy:

Re-energizing ourselves by consistent periods of renewal through sleep, diet, breaks, exercise, music can lead to success in your career path.

Think Positively

What happens tomorrow is because of how you thought, what you said, and what you do today. You are what you think you are.

Emotional Intelligence:

High IQ is a contributing factor to success, emotional intelligence is twice as likely as IQ to indicate success later in life.

Focus:

Find Your Career Focus—Self-Awareness Find your career path and focus it, stick to your goals and avoid switching from one career path to the other.

Build Relationships

Relationships are important in your quest for career success. If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together. Building positive relationships and partnerships is the single most important factor today to personal, career and organizational success.

Thoughts become things:

What are you thinking about your career? If you think negative, you will get negative and vice versa. Instead of thinking, ” How will I get my next job?” think, “How can I best serve the world?”.

Build Your Personal Brand:

Your Personal brand involves how you view yourself, what image you portray to the people around you. A healthy self-image will determine what actions you take and how you present yourself.

Be length conscious

The minimum number of words for a good Search engine optimization is 300 words. Ensure you don’t write below the minimum if you want to have a better SEO on your post.

Include links to your content

If you already wrote some contents relating to what you are writing about, ensure you liink it to the present post.

TIPS TO A SUCCESSFUL INTERVIEW

TIPS TO A SUCCESSFUL INTERVIEW

So you finally landed a job interview after several attempts at trying to get one. Congratulations! You don’t want to attend the interview naive and unprepared and risk chances of getting that job.

Here are few tips to successfully guide you through the interview process.

Dress the work:

It is important you dress properly to any job interview irrespective of the position you are applying for. You must dress the work so as to appear smart, ready and corporate.

Be polite:

Regardless of whoever you meet, it is very important that you are polite to even the security or the receptionist. Remember that you haven’t gotten the job and they still have a part to play in your chances of getting the job. What if you were rude to the security at the gate and he denies you entry into the venue?

Do your homework:

Your homework is to do a thorough research on the company you’re interviewing at. Ensure you find out from previous or present employees details about the company. And if you don’t have access to any of the employees, you can use the internet or ask around.

Be on time:

In an interview I attended some time ago, attendance was taken according to the time everyone arrived the venue. A man who was some minutes lost the interview. Though, he claimed it was traffic, he was denied access of being interviewed.

Be prepared:

A lot of people just attend interviews without adequately preparing and expect to thrill the employers. You must study likely questions to be asked during an interview and be prepared for them.

Be relaxed:

One way to be successful at an interview is to be relaxed even when interviewed. This does not only make you feel confident but also grants you the opportunity to think through a question before giving the answer.
