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.

  30. Great tips darling thank u for sharing with us this post!

  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.

  32. Super great post, I really enjoyed reading it :)

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?.

Wardrobe Staples For Every Working Lady

Hello dearies, today I would be writing about investing in timeless pieces that are work appropriate while remaining budget friendly and I basically live my life around this pieces.
A Basic Blazer: When I say basic blazer please refrain from picking up that ugly and pain inducing blazer that is on your mind, thank you. Now a basic black blazer should have a perfect fit, inviting look and skin friendly material while still remaining affordable. Is this possible, yes it is. You just have to know where to shop (lol). I found a few Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here.

A Statement Jacket: I love a statement jacket especially those morning when you are half awake and can't be bothered to put together an outfit (yes I am one of those people who wait till the last minute to pick out my look for the day), all you need is that jacket that can pull together any piece you throw on together like these Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here

Perfectly Tailored Pant: This can't be overst…

Dark Matters

I technically stole the Post Header from the series Dark Matter which I have been into recently (If you haven't seen any episode, you are missing a lot trust me on that) and since my dress code was basically on the dark color spectrum, I can possible say the series spoke to me as my mode was far from dark (and also I might have been running late hence this lol).  I have also noticed that most of my recent outfit had been revolving around black and white color spectrum (which is totally unconscious BTW), so for this look I tried to branch out a bit but couldn't. So I am making a promise here that my next outfit post would be rid of any black or white color and would be a cool play on color combination.  Till then, I leave you guys with my Thursday work look. A little update on my leg injury, the doctor said I would soon be able to start rocking my heels again. Hopefully my next post would also showcase the newest addition to my shoe collection.
