Listen Now: 4 Career Mistakes You Shouldn’t Be Making After 35
At a certain point we all have to grow up and for your job that point is thirty-five years old.
Experts say thirty-five is the prime age to have your life together, particularly in your career. And while you might still be working towards your dream job you should have about a decade of experience under your belt.
So according to the job site Ladders.com there are a few mistakes you should no longer be making. For example leaving emails unanswered; set reminders to respond to emails that need a response. And don’t use email to avoid phone conversations.
While the younger generation is a fan of non-verbal communication, professional people should be able to speak on the phone. Avoid office gossip, it’s good to be friends with your co-workers but it’s not high school so who is dating who and who might be getting fired is not news you should be spreading.
Finally stop apologizing if you haven’t done anything wrong. Own a mistake you made but steer clear of others, because we all have to grow up sometime.
