Build a long lasting career

I want to share some tips on how to build a long lasting career. This is for young people who are graduating and starting on their first job. 

1. Choose a job that fits your skill set. You are embarking on a career for the long run. By using your skills, you will be able to perform the job better than other people. Your chance of succeeding is better. 

2. Choose a job that few people wants. It could be a small company or one that has more challenging working conditions. Your employer will need you more than you need the job. You have fewer competitors.

3. Don't worry about the things that you do not know, or that are "messy". It takes time to learn, and the skills will last you for a long term. Most skill sets require a long time to learn anyway.

4. Stick to the same line. Do not jump from one job to another. By staying in the same line, you will be a "master of the trade".

5. Your reward will come, but it takes time. Be patient. If you are really good, the opportunity will come to you soon. But, if you are "rubbish", this will tell quite soon. Many people do not learn the real skills, and they do not succeed because they are "rubbish".

I hope that these tips are useful to you. Most people are impatient and want to earn good income early. They do not build the skills sets that will last them a long time.
