Get Ready To Advance Your Career By Leaving These Bad Pieces Of Advice Behind Once And For All
There is no shortage of career advice available on the Internet. In fact, there are so many experts and articles on the topic that people might find it hard to piece them all together. What more, not each one of these can actually be helpful for those who are looking for guidance on matters like advancing in their specific profession.
Thus, it’s important to know how to weed out the good from the bad to make sure one won’t be taken off track. Here’s a rundown of the horrible tips career coach Adunola Adeshola is warning people from following in a Forbes article.
Waiting Things Out
Employees, who may be unhappy with their current job, are often told to simply stay put and wait things out. The danger in heeding this advice is that one will potentially be stuck in a place where there are no opportunities for growth that aligns with the goals a person has. This means making the big decision to quit even though one is getting paid really well or whether they think their workplace is cool.
Avoiding Salary Negotiations
The logic behind the tip telling people to avoid negotiating their salaries is that it might cause one to lose the offer they’ve been given. This isn’t necessarily true though. In fact, good companies will actually expect their employees to negotiate and will this initiative as a sign that a candidate is able to speak up for themselves.
Not Believing in Dream Jobs
Some say that there really is no such thing as a dream job. At the end of the day, even a seemingly perfect job still comes with stress. What matters more is that one finds something that’s challenging but also worth the stress it brings. Thus, people are advised to be clear with the knowledge and experience that they can use in their next job or position and then apply for companies that match their goals.
Faking Until Making It
‘Fake it ‘til you make it’ is probably one of the most popular career tips that people are given. While this may have worked well in the past, it might not lead to the same results in this age of technology. Applicants can definitely stand out from the competition by being authentic. After all, it’s real people with real experiences and values that employers are looking for.
Quitting to Job Search
It can be tempting to quit one’s job to be able to focus better on finding better work. However, this isn’t a wise choice considering that failure to find a new job is also a big possibility. What more, having more free hours can also lead to one being more unproductive.
