Here are 3 simple and easy tips to a successful career:
1. Dress for Success – Believe it or not good looks can take you far and so does a snappy outfit! You don’t have to wear the most expensive brand or the most expensive suit but you have to wear clothes that show the impression you want to make. Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Also, notice that in general (and most of the time) you receive better treatment when you look good.
2. Improve Your Skills – Strengthen your skills. Learn something new and acquire new experiences. Project management, public speaking, finance, technology and medical related skills are always in demand.. or it can be as simple as learning a new language.
3. Expand Your Network. Be Kind to Everyone. Increase Your “Career Karma” – A lot of things happen because of someone you know. Other times, “It’s who you know and not what you know”. But at the same time, I don’t approve that you will only be nice to someone because of his/her advantage. Be kind to everyone. “The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.” I would like to say that Samuel Johnson said it but according here there is no proof that he really said it.. so I will leave it to anonymous 🙂
