Sometimes we take any kind of help we can find, then on other days we don’t want to hear what anyone has to say about what you should or shouldn’t be doing.
But when it comes to our careers, we have to keep an open mind. We’re young and still trying to navigate our way through life let alone our jobs. You may still be in school, or just graduated and trying to figure out what exactly you can do with your law degree. Do you take the route to write board exams and serve articles or do you go straight to the bar.
All these kind of decisions need to be made from an informed position. You have to research what it is you really need. What can work specifically in line with your own goals and aspirations. But, like we’ve heard before…
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
What we are essentially trying to tell you, is that, listening to others tell you about their careers and how they went about doing certain things, might help you with yours. So many people before us have tried and tested some of the things you are yet to experience in your career, so that’s why you should take advice when its offered to you.
Listen and learn from people who you would like to be like. Finding success in your career really needs advice and mentorship every now and again.
We all need career advice, even though at times it feels like its unsolicited and we think we have whatever it takes to build a successful career. You never know where your next opportunity can come from, it may be from someone who offers you direction to do a particular thing, cause maybe they have identified a skill in you that you haven’t harnessed within yourself.
So we suggest, that while we are young, while we try figure things out… Take as much advice as possible, be open-minded to what possibilities are there in the legal field and work on it everyday.
