6 tips to manage and maximize your career
I went to my friends Hassan Khalid (Asst Manager SUPARCO) & Mr.Faisal Shahzad (Asst Manager SUPARCO). They know about Amal through me and told him that I want your suggestion about these questions.
1) Do an internship before pursuing a higher degree to confirm if you like that field.
Ans: They said, absolutely before going to a field and professional job one must know his/her taste. By doing an internship in a field, we gain an experience of which industry and type of job we are fit for. It also develops an interest of the employee towards the job.
2) Don’t do PhD if you want to be an entrepreneur or work in corporate sector.
Ans: They said, they are agreed with that. If a person wants to work in a field and don’t want to study further or if he has no interest in teaching. He should not have to go with PhD. He must have spent his time for job and after that he will be at high ranked in the company.
3) Spent at least one year in your job first.
Ans: They said, if one wants to do M.Sc. or higher study in his/her relevant field he should spent at least a year in the job so that he has professional experience in his study. I will be good enough to know what is going on in the industry.
4) Find your passion and align it with your career.
Ans: They said, it is very important to know about the passion of the employee. If we want to develop our career we first have to find our passion. Because if we go on working without knowing our passion we can make money but we can’t build our career.
5) Decisions are very unique to each person, what’s right for one isn’t right for the other.
Ans: They said, everyone has its own choice, taste, and decision. If someone like engineering he may or may not be interested in the medical or commerce field and same is for other. Everyone has its own point of view about anything.
6) Don’t let other people make decision for you and don’t blame anyone else.
Ans: They said, everyone is responsible for his/her own decision. If I make a decision and after a certain time I realized I have made a wrong decision. It would be my fault. I can’t blame anyone else. I am responsible for my every decision either wrong or right
My experience, discussing all these tips with my friend turned out to be quite auspicious. There was a sense of positivity around us. Discussing these tips with him helped me to memorize the points well and I realized that truly these tips are of great importance and quite useful in providing proper guidance for one’s success in his/her career.
Seeing the positive results I’m planning to share these tips with my other friends as well.
