Dream Job or First Job

Dream Job or First Job

১ম পর্ব

ক্যারিয়ারের শুরুতে আপনি “ড্রিম জব” না পেলেও, প্রথম জব থেকে আপনি অনেক কিছু শিখতে পারেন। প্রথম চাকরি আমাদেরকে অনেক সময় আমাদের কমফোর্ট জোনের বাহিরে নিয়ে যায়, যা কিনা আমরা চিন্তাও করিনা। এইভাবে প্রথম চাকরি আমাদের এগিয়ে যাওয়ার পথ কে সঠিক আকার দিতে সহায়তা করে।

২০১৭ সালে Matthew Baker, এন্টারপ্রেনার ডট কম এর গেস্ট রাইটার কয়েকজন সফল উদ্যোক্তাকে জিজ্ঞাসা করেছিলেন, প্রথম জব থেকে তারা কি শিখতে পেরেছিলেন।

চলুন জেনে নেই তাদের প্রথম জবের লার্নিংটা

“I got a minimum wage job in a windowless chemistry lab where I had to wear a full-body protection suit and clean glass beakers with acid. It was mind-numbingly boring. It was painful and low-pay. The most important thing I learned was an appreciation for any job that would be fulfilling emotionally. I really wanted a job that had direct positive impact on people’s lives and without that, I couldn’t be happy.”

“My first job was a secretary position at a legal firm in downtown Los Angeles. The head secretary ended up quitting a couple weeks after I started so I was given a lot of responsibility, essentially managing an office of 12 lawyers. I learned how to use Outlook and Excel, how to work in a corporate environment and manage my time, how to be diplomatic and deal with tough clients.

“It also taught me my own worth, that I was capable of earning a real salary. As a young person (I was still in high school), I realized age didn’t matter as much as work ethic and ability. Also, the firm had a female partner. She was a very talented lawyer and reminded me I could do anything I wanted.”

“Early in my career, I worked at an industrial supply distributor with a well-known operations management program. My job was to move from department to department, manage teams and make things better, faster, cheaper. Based on my belief that happy, motivated employees do good work, I launched an initiative that allowed people to listen to music while doing manual labor.

“This was not well-received by senior management. The head of my branch held a big meeting and called my initiative a ‘fluffy business school idea’ with no merit. I had never been so humiliated in my life. I got through the meeting, cried for about six hours straight and resolved to find a company better aligned with my intuition. This was 2007 — right when Google was named the No. 1 best place to work, in large part because of its innovative approach to motivating employees. I jumped at the chance to work there and haven’t looked back. This was a formative experience for me because it helped me clarify what kind of organizations I’m willing to join and what kind of leader I want to be at Upstart.”

“My first three ‘real’ jobs taught me a lot. As a second year university student, I worked with Mezzanine Consulting. I was given tons of autonomy there, and it taught me to figure things out and have confidence. After that, I worked for the photography company Blacks, with John Kelleher. He taught me about what a winning mindset looks like — about really thinking big and setting huge aspirations. That was a really important influence, and the idea of thinking really big is something I often speak about now. And the job I had before joining my first startup, 1000 memories, was at McKinsey. Working in that environment taught me a lot about how to solve problems.”

“I landed my first full-time job in investment banking in the finance world. It taught me how to work hard, as I was working 80-100 hours a week. I learned the importance of attention to detail in a place where I had to make sure I do work well, accurately and quickly. I learned best practices when it came to communicating professionally — as an investment banker, you’re dealing with CEOs, management teams and bosses. To be able to communicate well over email, phone and in-person was something that was drilled into me. And of course, it taught me a bunch of finance skills, which was helpful for running a fin-tech company.”

“I had a bunch of different jobs when I was growing up (in Queens), but the one that’s been the most influential was a warehouse job I had before going to college. Right away, I was put in a management role, and the owner took me under his wing. It wasn’t easy. He was stern, and he’d push me to take on new challenges. He’d let me fail at times so I could learn from it, but I’d still have to own that failure. Looking back, that experience prepared me for becoming an entrepreneur, and the leadership lessons I learned there — autonomy with accountability — continue to influence my management style.”
