Entry-Level Working: Insights From Working Seven Months Full-time

 

So I’ve been working in my first full-time out of college for a little more than seven months now.  I’ve learned a lot in the past months.  In fact I’ve written about my experiences over at Ryan Stephen’s awesome marketing blog.

Check out my post here.

What did you learn about the workplace or yourself in the first months of working full-time?  I’d love to hear your story and steal some of your advice :)

What I Learned from Merlin Mann on Starting

Merlin Mann said something that really caught my ear in this week’s episode of Back to Work:

“Everyday is a new day, whether you like it or not.”

So simple but so profound. What he is saying is that yesterday doesn’t really matter.

If you failed yesterday, today is another opportunity to get it right. Even if you won yesterday you have to keep going today; past wins won’t guarantee continued success.

“No matter how much you’ve sucked in the past you can write today. No matter how well you’ve written in the past you still have to write today.”

Whatever you want to get better at or start doing, just remember that today is as good as any.

A Preview Into My Future Posts

Want to see all of my blog post drafts?  Even if you said no to that question now you can!  You see I write all of blog posts in Evernote, then copy and paste them into WordPress for editing.

Anyways, I made the notebook I hold all of my drafts public.  Just use this link: http://www.evernote.com/pub/camplommer/blogposts.

I think it’s a cool idea and a way to give people a glimpse into what’s on my mind and what I’m thinking about.

Cool idea?  Stupid?  Let me know.

How Brazen Careerist Can Kick Your Career’s Ass

Last week Ryan Paugh from the social networking site Brazen Careerist and Employee Evolution told me that a writer from YPNation needed some quotes for an article he was writing about Brazen Careerist.  Since I have been a very active user of the site Ryan referred  me.  Well the article is up and I’m quoted a few times, which is personally very cool for me.

In the comments I’d love for you to share how you use Brazen Careerist, what benefits you’ve gotten from the site and how you think it could be even better. Continue reading
