How to Manage Your Early Career (In Sum)

Yesterday’s post comprised qualitative feedback from over 100 recent graduate school alumni on how to manage early career success and the transition from school to work. As I reflect upon the mass wealth of wisdom, I have gleaned 10 simple-stated axioms to help you manage your transition.

  • Network (relationships are EVERYTHING)
  • Take control of your brand (self-awareness is key)
  • Be flexible and learn to manage ambiguity
  • Ask good questions/be curious
  • Develop business acumen and an analytical mindset
  • Exude Confidence
  • Step outside of your comfort zone
  • Mentally and physically prepare for your transition
  • Relax
