Useful career tips

Some recent advice I got, either through people who I work for, through books and online blogs, or through people that I know within my organization:

1)      1)  Visualize your career as a jungle gym instead of a ladder.  - Sheryl Sandberg

2)      2)  You may be an expert adviser, a great analyzer, but ultimately what really determines your success is being an excellent decision-maker.  -  Brian Leach, Citi’s Chief Risk Officer said in the town hall meeting.

I think this is especially true for us who work in the quantitative field.

3)      3) Brian also commented on the entrepreneurial spirit at work, and teamwork. Teamwork in a big company is most importantly about communication, and communication is about escalation – make sure the right people know, but convey it with decision-making tone. Again, this resonates with what my manager used to tell me, what she cares about in terms of communication -  always letting her know and getting the priorities right.

4)      4) Be well prepared; do the homework, think ahead what you need to know to make a difference.

5)       5)Leadership is about having visions and strategies. Stay calm even when the world melts. & Communicate.   – again, from Brian Leach

 

6)       6)  I also found, Ida Liu, one of the youngest MD from Citi Private Bank, gave great career advice for people who work in the relationship management field:

 

a.       Build a strong network

b.      Find good mentors

c.       Understand your strength/weakness/your branding, shape your own career path based on that

d.      Overcome the typical Asian stereotypes. Speak up about your accomplishment; leverage your peers and your team.

 

7)       7) My favorite career blog written by Penelope Trunk, advised on a checklist to see if you are indeed in a good job. A good job provides clear goals, provides a sense of control, provides unambiguous feedback, and stretches you without defeating you. Personally, I think we should never push too much to have a good job to begin with. Unless you are already perfect at what you are doing, otherwise, there’s still room to grow. The best opportunities are around the corner for those who are ready.

8)        8)     Most of us are born and guided into financial realities. However, if there are any kind of work you want to look for, but that’s not in your day-job, try to bootstrap your work of art (during spare time, most likely). That work on the side will motivate you to continue fighting the good fight for your craft, but which will also help you build up secondary skills that may one day contribute to your creative fulfillment.

      9) Lastly, when you do the deep soul-searching, be a little honest about who you are. Discovering your unique talents will not only make you happier, but also make you earn more money doing that. Dedicated, driven, genuine, and honest. Anything that seems like a big deal too much to take now will matter so little in two years. Others will past hoopla, and so will ourselves. Those will just be part of who we are. Remember, no one is enchanting if they are not whole.
