Workplace 101

posted October 19th, 2012 by Janet Graham - Leave a Comment

In the October issue of CAmagazine, there is a great article Workplace 101 written by Lisa van de Geyn. The tag line says: “So, you’ve landed your first accounting gig. Want to impress your colleagues, manager and partners? Follow this advice from CAs who have been there.”


I thought the artilce was well worth reading.  It offers ten tips to navigate a first job successfully. The ten tips are:


1. Find a good fit.

2. Sponge smarts off the seniors.

3. Respect office culture.

4. Find a mentor.

5. Embrace your errors.

6. Be passionate.

7. Put in your hours…and then some.

8. Remember the other two Rs. (Reading and writing.)

9. Work it outside the office.

10. Ask questions.


I think the entire article is worth reading for those just starting out on their careers. You can find it by following this link:
