entering the business world
The business world can be a frightening place. I recently received my first real job, and by real I mean finally a job that does not require me to cook food or hang clothes. It is with an energy company in a downtown office setting, and needless to say, it has been one crazy experience. Here’s what I would offer as tips that I have picked up in my first few weeks of surviving the business world. First, be confident. Don’t get down on yourself or think you are incapable. But also, don’t ever be afraid to ask for help. You can’t learn anything by guessing, so ask questions. And as my supervisor told me, there are no hard questions, it’s just a matter of knowing where to look for the answers.
