PLANS & PRICING
Before we even begin to answer this, Congratulations! Just studying, or getting your first job in an extremely competitive field is worth commendation. Be proud that you have made it this far. And now, here is Rudderly’s guide on how to survive and thrive-
Don’t bite off more than you can chew- It may be tempting to put your hand up and volunteer for every opportunity that comes your way, but remember to only take up as much as you can handle.
Understand what is expected- Companies have certain targets they expect all employees to achieve. If you volunteer for more, they will not hesitate to allocate it to you, but it may hamper your performance on your main tasks. That gives the impression of a lack of commitment and irresponsible time management.
Listen and observe- The first and most important thing to remember is to listen. Don’t feel the pressure stand out of the crowd by answering and participating in every discussion. Take the time to soak in what’s going on around you and understand the dynamics. Construct your views and opinions and then confidently express them when you are absolutely sure of what you are saying. Don’t just make off the cuff remarks, be well researched and prudent.
Ask questions- There is a common misconception that asking questions when you are new to a certain organization is a sign of weakness. But that is a myth. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Asking questions is seen as a taking initiative to understand what is going on around you and willingness to learn.
Keep Learning- The best way to succeed is to never stop learning. Follow your mentors, learn from them and be open minded. Take online courses, read books and listen to podcasts by experts in your field. Your thirst for knowledge and learning will go a long way.
