Career Success Tips For The Newbie

Good day all, sorry for the long absence. I was asked to share my tidbit of wisdom for the new generation of career driven professional about to begin job searching. So here are my tidbit of wisdom that I titled "Career Success Tips For The New Graduate". I would be as brief and as concise as possible.

This Newbie tips were what I used and still use to make it in my very competitive industry (finance and fashion industry are both competitive but I would be focusing on the finance Industry to draw these tips). P.S. I believe it works in every industry.

1. Get A Mentor:
Surrounded by many success stories in our world today, being inspiring is no longer a skill. In other to achieve edge one must definitely have a success stories but first you need to get an mentor that not only inspires you into believing that yes you can do this but one in who you can easily relate to. Therefore, choose a mentor whose work inspires you to be the best in your chosen field.


2. Get rid of time wasters:
I believe that in a early stage of your career, you need people or things that will encourage you and uplift you. Therefore getting rid of everything that slows you down is a given to be a success.

3. Never give up:
You must be determined to run the race that lies ahead to becoming the best in your chosen career. That may mean first taking up an unpaid internship, maybe having a crappy pay, living in the slum to be able to keep your head above the water but put in mind that it is just for now. I believe the saying that quitters never win and winner never quit. Just hang in there for now.

4. Focus on the goal:
Sometimes we may suffer to become our dream but focusing on the joy ahead, we can ignore the pain of today.


Don't be discouraged, be patient and your plans will work out in perfect timing, It isn't easy but it helps when you focus on the end result.

5.Be a good student:
What I have learned in my industry is that skills go obsolete very fast and only a dynamic person can survive here. This means being willing to unlearn or relearn everything you know and don't know. You need to be a learner willing to be taught and to adapt to change.

6. Make a name for yourself:
Making a name for your self takes hardwork and years of determination and dedication. Your name can be your resume if you are willing to put in the time and effort it takes to build that resume (your name). But if you choose to kill your name (may be through fraud, malpractices, bad work ethics e.t.c), you open yourself up to the dangers of a full blown identity crisis.

7.Be indispensable:
Devotion to whatever you are doing brings with it a form of importance within an organisation especially from your superior who would always put their trust in you and would readily refer you for more responsibilities. Being indispensable makes it easy to bargain for raise and benefits when the times comes.

In conclusion, pull yourself together and be the best you can be while welcoming changes, corrections and advises.

  31. Brilliant advice! I totally agree with all the points you made and getting a mentor can really help. I feel being crushed these days simply by not having anyone who can motivate, encourage and give an impartial opinion. In the past I had someone who believed in me more than I did and it worked wonders for me.

Suit And Tie

If you remember correctly, I showed you all My Big Reveal. So today you would be seeing it in an outfit. I woke up with Angelina Jolie's outfit to BAFTA award on my mind so I decided to replicate it while adding my own touch to the ensemble.


 Yeah, I tried it out with a white lace top. Different but me right?


 My ultimate goal was to take the look and make it as ladylike as possible without ruining the effect of the suit and tie. I loved the outcome and received lots of complements on it.
I also decide to play with grey, black and blue as my basics.
 What are your thoughts. Do you think my way of replication is cool or I should just stick to basic white shirt?














SLIVER AND GOLD, I GOT BOTH

Am so sorry dearies for being unavailable for soo long, had to travel impromptu. Even after I got back, I was swamped with work but the good news is that I got to see my mum during her birthday which was totally amazing.

Anyway, today's outfit is from last week (can't really remember the day I wore it). If you have been following me on Instagram you would have seen this look on there.

Alright on my outfit, I wore an all black outfit to work and even though it felt blah to me, my boss was of the opinion that I looked like I was going for a party. As yours truly heard that, I took a snapshot of the outfit. It is not everyday my boss acknowledges my look lol.


The skirt is an old skirt my mum got me in my first year at school but I hardly wore it. Going home this past few weeks I decided to bring with me some of my old clothes and I love the mix of old and kind of new.
Would you rock suck a look to work?, would love to hear your thoughts.





TURBAN DAY

My first attempt at incorporating a turban without wearing a trad went amazing well. I have been tying turbans and scarves a lot lately (and no it isn't religious more like my culture) but never tried it with a top and pants. So today, I decided to break that norm and use a turban with whatever I choose to wear. Hence, this outfit. What are your thoughts?.
