People: Who can really support the beginning of you career



Early in the career, we need to run fast to our goals to see the doors open to us. But who could help your project career in those first steps? Who can approach us to to an interesting opportunity. 

At the beginning of the career the challenges are big issues and the way they come to you are the most diverse possible. 

It is very normal for us to rush to want great accomplishments happen early in our professional life, but we must remember that the walk to the top in a slow but continuous movement.

That way show to us, it does not matter exactly how fast you have given each step in direction to your goals, provided, of course, you are always taking those steps and never stop evolving.

Everyone knows that there is no secret to a successful career because this subject is a very relevant variable and it involves everything from the environment in which you are inserted to the people you relate to throughout your professional life. 

The only certainty we can have, is that your effort and dedication to getting where you want are crucial factors.

But people around you have a very relevant role as well. The network of contacts we build throughout our career reinforces and surrounds us with people who can help us reach the most varied career and life opportunities that we cannot imagine.

Always try to help and contribute to people. Show that you can be someone who adds something of value to their lives and their careers. Make sure that if you do this, without always trying to get something back, you can see the right chances come at the right time. But again, don’t do things expecting something in return.

I do that every day and I try to be a relevant young for people around me. Be confident in your networking and believe in the power that people can have for your career.

The tricky part is understanding where people are on their journey. Sometimes they just are not ready for your feedback.

I agree with Stephane, but I will say that you usually find out very quickly if someone is not open to you helping them. Just do not take offense. Sometimes you step back and find them coming back to you later.
I actually love mentoring our young interns and coaching my peers. What I get back is just the reward of knowing I helped.

Stephene comment is right for both party to the equation.

Consistent & sustainable growth is always preferred

The choices we make when starting a career are so important. Listening to those with experience is crucial, and often ignored in youth.

As Pablo Picasso said: "It takes a long time to become young.”

Thanks for posting

But also identifying the right mentor is crucial.

Important point to remember:
"Always try to help and contribute to people. Show that you can be someone who adds something of value to their lives and their careers. Make sure that if you do this, without always trying to get something back, you can see the right chances come at the right time. But again, don't do things expecting something in return. "
