In Your 20s? Here’s the Career Advice You Need to Know.

Career Advice

4608963722_7c88e503f8_zHuffington Post featured an article on the Top 10 Most Difficult and Useful Things People Need to Learn in Their 20s. It’s no surprise that much of that advice is career related. After all, those precious years before you hit the big 3-0 can set your career on a path for success — or full speed into a train wreck. Before you freak out, know that there’s a silver lining. That exact chaos that you fear is just a part of being in your 20s. It’s not the end of the world. Here are our favorite quotes from the article:

On trying to figure it all out:

“Most 20-29 year olds (and many even after that) spend all their time worrying or wondering who they’re going to be. Who they should be. Who they’re going to become. Meanwhile, they miss moment after moment to practice skills and learn what they need to learn in order to become that “future self” right now, today.”

On learning new things and developing your talent:

“… it’s far easier to learn something in your 20s (especially when you’re motivated by your lack of funds), than when you’re moderately comfortable and in your 30s, or 40s, or 50s. Spend your time learning and harnessing your skill-sets.”

On networking like a champion:

“Find the ones who are passionate about what they do and connect with them. These are the people who will be successful 10 years from now, and just like how you would invest in an early start-up, invest in your relationships to keep doors open in the future. Remember, you’re net worth is your network.”
