Ching’s Answer

Written on behalf of a group of volunteers at HPE:

Achieving success isn't always a straightforward path, but remember, failure is merely a stepping stone leading you towards your ultimate goal. Often, our greatest lessons are learned through our setbacks, not our victories, so don't shy away from challenges. Embrace flexibility and adaptability as these are key skills that will guide you on your career journey.

Amanda’s Answer

Hi Riz!

I think the key component that helps individuals get better at their jobs is to always strive to be better than you were yesterday. You can put all your effort into today, but there is always room for improvement, growth, and knowledge to be gained.

With that being said, it's crucial to seek constructive feedback from your peers, managers, and mentors. Ask them what they need from you as an employee. Set goals for yourself to keep yourself organized and on track. Never stop learning new things and new skills. Get outside of your comfort zone and take on things you may have never thought to do before. Use your strengths while also asking yourself how you can overcome setbacks.

I hope this helps!

Dear Riz,

First of all, don't worry! No one always succeeds in their career. We all have to learn, learn, and learn some more. This is an ongoing process!

Failure leads to greater successes. You can never be successful, if you've never fell on your face a couple of times. The most important thing is to learn from your mistakes.

Also, surround yourselves with people that like to help you. Ask all the questions you have to your peers! Don't be afraid to share what you're thinking. Most people are happy to help you succeed.

Moreover, try to put yourself in a positive situation. Don't put yourselves in a situation in which you know you're gonna fail. E.g.: Don't take a job that you know isn't going to work, just because it pays better. Do what makes you feel good!

Another important tip: don't feel intimidated by your coworkers. Everyone follows their own journey. Don't feel overwhelmed by coworkers that work there longer than you; you can't compare that. ;)

Sometimes, you find yourselves in a bad situation and you need to make a change. Don't be afraid to step into the dark and try something new that might suit you better. And if you really like the company you're working for/school committee you're in/etc., but it doesn't quite work, discuss this with your manager or peers. How can you create a situation in which you'd be happy?

And sometimes... It's ok to feel that it's not going that great. Everyone experiences this. Make sure to take the time to reflect and follow your gut feeling.

You've got this, Riz! Don't compare yourself with others, because there's only 1 like you!

Best wishes,

Amber

Michael’s Answer

**Written on behalf of a group of volunteers at HPE**

Hello,

We believe it's important to define what career and success looks like individually - do you define what winning looks like? Please remember, it is not always possible to win every single time, but these points might be able to help you achieve success and growth.

We've created the following list below as food-for-thought to help you generate ideas and use in your career:

- Be reflective and ask for feedback
- Don't be afraid to ask for help
- Set long-term goals, but also break those long-term goals into smaller short-term goals
- Embrace failure as a means of learning and growth
- The fear of failure should not stop you from trying
- Be relentlessly curious
- You should try to learn new things throughout your journey
- Understand your 'Why?' What motivates you to get out of bed? Make it matter to yourself and those around you.

We hope these tips and blurbs will provide some help in your career journey, and we are always happy to answer any other questions you may have! :)

Adrian’s Answer

The best answer I can give you is to always excel in areas that are in your control. Internal factors such as being driven and staying within your goals make a determination in where your success will lie. Sometimes you will face adversity and you will want to throw in the towel. Just always remember that nothing is permanent and this will be a true test of character to be successful.

I hope this helps!

Diana’s Answer

Hi there,

How can people have success in their careers? I am a translator so I will tell you what I do. I never stop LEARNING. You want to be the best. Trained yourself to be the best.

First study a career you are passionate about. When you love what you do anything you can do to improve your knowledge would be easy to do. Be curious. Learn from the leaders in your field. Read books about your field and about encouragement. Did you finish school? Get a degree. Did you get a degree? Get a master degree. Or study courses to update your knowledge your received in school.

Get a mentor, maybe one of your teachers, a professor, a colleague, a boss. Anyone you admire and try to imitate them and ask for help or opinion in what you are doing.

Good luck!

Mindy’s Answer

On my way to work every morning, I always get myself in a determined, motivated mindset. Think positively, give yourself some affirmations! Believe in yourself, no matter how hard it may get, or how bad you may want to give up. I know for myself; I have a drive that keeps me going. It keeps me wanting to improve every day. Mindset is everything. There's nothing you can't do.

Greg’s Answer

Dear Riz,

This is a great question. First, it is helpful to understand your definition of success. Some people measure success by the rewards they receive from your job (e.g., salary, bonus, paid time off, other fringe benefits) whereas others see success in how satisfied they are with their job and where their job is taking them. Some general tips for having success include: being willing to learn and stretch yourself, quickly learning from your mistakes, being accountable for your work, being an effective communicator, and building trust with others by doing what you say you will do. This list is not exhaustive, but is a good foundation for you.

All the best!

Bob’s Answer

Dear Riz.

The answer to your question hinges upon another question; namely, what do you mean by "success?" If by that word you mean a career always rising upward with no hiccups along the way, then the answer to your question is "You can't."

Every career will have ups and downs, successes and failures, joy and sorrow, satisfaction and impatience. Just like life.

But if by "success" you mean that each day you strove to do your best on the job, to learn and to teach, to serve and to assist, always seeking to add value wherever possible, then such an outcome is possible every day. It is in your hands.

Seek always to utilize your education and skills on behalf of others, and whatever course you choose, whatever career path you follow, you will always enjoy success!

All the best!!

Pavan’s Answer

The below response was written on behalf of a group of volunteers at HPE.
The word Success is very generic in nature and can be very different for everyone.
Most important part here would to be identify what would I as person define Success to be. For example, Success for a person would only mean getting accolades from their manager. For another it could mean monetary gain and getting Salary hikes.
This clear identification holds the key to attain Success. Staying relevant and updated in your current job role is the key. With technology and trends upgrading each passing day, ensuring we are upskilling is another key aspect to attain Success.
Changing roles from time to time and picking up roles that are of interest is also something to be looked at.
