The President Of Knobull Shares Career Fulfillment Success Factors

By: Knobull
BOSTON - Oct. 22, 2023 - PRLog -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull announced, "This past summer marked my anniversary of joining the professional workforce. Many years have come and gone since I've walked across the stage with a BA degree in one hand and a five-year plan in the other. Unfortunately, my five-year plan crashed immediately. Fortunately, I've come out the other end with a new perspective."

For those navigating the first 10 years of their career, here's what is recommended:

The only constant is change

Companies change their structures, your interests or goals may evolve, or your personal circumstances could change in a way that you didn't see coming. If you learn to be adaptable and not only expect change but also embrace it.

It's never too early to establish your support network

When you're starting your career, most of your network is made up of family, friends, and classmates. But as the years pass, you'll begin to interact with and meet new people who can serve varying purposes in your career.

You may need a cheerleader when you need help, so a coach like JobStars, found on the Knobull homepage, should be consulted when you need someone to guide you.

Trust your gut

My gut has always steered me right. I used to think trusting your gut wasn't always the best decision because logic should outweigh intuition. But now I know that's the furthest from the truth. My gut reaction is a compilation of all my lived experiences thus far.

At the end of the day, you need to make decisions that are best for you. So, throughout your career, do your best to tune out the noise and listen to what you really need.

Get your money right (whatever that means for you)

Many people enter the workforce after high school or college, meaning that in the first 10 years of our careers, we're in our twenties and thirties. Many life events typically happen during this time, like marriage, paying off student loans, starting a family, and saving for a down payment on a house.

The first 10 years of our careers should be spent getting our money right, which means determining our priorities and goals, and understanding how to make our money work for us.

There is no such thing as a linear career path

Career paths used to be seen as ladders: linear and direct. Careers are malleable and require flexibility, so kiss linearity goodbye and say hello to multidimensional careers.

Having fun and being happy at work is okay

Bentley concluded, "Every day won't be awesome, but the majority can be. At the very least, you owe it to yourself to find what feels good and do your best to steer your career toward enjoyment and fulfillment."
