5 Things You Need to Give up to Get A Job

Adam Starr l AdminSecret


Boss of Your Cube… if You’re Lucky


You may have been the president of your sorority. You may have managed the restaurant you worked at. You may have been a fearless leader amongst your admiring friends. You may have been many things. You may even have exemplary leadership qualities. That still doesn’t mean that you are going to walk off the graduation stage and take your rightful place as the head of your company. If you are smart, resourceful, and a quick learner than you may indeed someday grow into that leadership position. You will not, however, be starting out in charge. In fact you will be much, much closer to the opposite of in charge. You may have to wait outside of important meetings, make copies, fetch coffee, run errands, do tedious paperwork and many other unsavory things as you start off in your first year of full-time employment.

The Good News:

This isn’t forever. Remember when you were a freshmen and everyone else had so much more experience and clout than you? The same thing will happen here. After a year or two you will be an upperclassman and you’ll be able to watch from your lofty perch as the new kid on the block replaces you as the resident newbie. This doesn’t mean that you’ll go from entry-level to CEO anytime soon, but it does mean that you can see the career ladder ahead of you and will have already gleaned an understanding on how to ascend that ladder.

Now that we’ve got that settled, are you ready to graduate into your career?
