6 TIPS TO MAXIMIZE YOUR CAREER
You can learn many new things if you practice how to apportion your ideas. When you talk to someone, you get to know what they have to say about a particular topic. By others experience we can amend ourselves and even can advise someone and lead him to right path by sharing our experience.
The most difficult thing to do in the world is to convince someone to take out their time and listen what you have to say. Everyone is too busy to listen you and if they listen they don’t have time to act on it. You have to face many challenges and failures when you try to advice.
During online course I gained knowledge about six tips on how to maximize your career. After reading those tips some of my mates came into my mind with whom I felt I need to share these tips.
Tips are as:
1. Find your passion and align it with your career
2. Decisions are very unique to each person, what’s right for one isn’t right for the other
3. Own your decisions: Don’t let other people make decisions for you and don’t blame anyone else
4. Do an internship before pursuing a higher degree to confirm if you like that field/industry
5. Don’t do PhD if you want to be an entrepreneur or work in corporate sector
6. Spend at least one year in your first job
Few of my friends are still trying to get admission in medical colleges but they are doing bachelor’s degree too. I went to one of my classmates and I discussed with her that what is her passion and what she really want to do. She told me that she wanted to be a doctor but after failure in medical test she couldn’t find any other field so she started doing biochemistry. She disagreed that she has no other option but I convinced her after by sharing some videos from Amal project work.
We had a discussion in the class that only boys can do whatever they want but girls are bound to what others decide for them. My friend said the same so in the break time I talked to her and inquired her that why does she think that? She told me that she belong to a small town where girls are not given right for decision so I advised her that she should find her passion and don’t do what others wanted her to do. Along with that I shared a video and some other tips with her.
Many of my friends blame their family and relatives for deciding their fields. A girl in my class always blame others. Yesterday I had a very interesting conversation with her and I asked her that did she had courage and enough self-confidence to select her field? She was surprised by my question. I told her that we need to take the decisions and we have to own them once we decide what to do.
I contacted my friend to discuss her future goals. She told me that she is very passionate to do research work and become a senior biochemist. I asked her whether she has done any internship or not so she told me that she don’t know how to do an internship and what the benefits of it are. So I shared with her some of my knowledge and my experiences and convinced her to do an internship so that she could know that where her interest lie.
I told my friend about the 5th tip. She was extremely surprised because her perception was completely changed. She wanted to do job as well as study till PHD. I told her that if she wants to work, to gain experience then she don’t need to study further. For convincing her I shared videos of sohail sahib at amal academy and further shared some more information related to jobs and industries for pursuing her career.
While discussing about PHD and my friend asked me certain questions like job opportunities. So I told her that she should spend at least one year in first job. The very next question was WHY? What if we are not interested and many questions like these. I convinced by telling her that you can gain much experience and secondly you can get to know what kind of environment, people and company culture is suitable for her.
