💎 Are you wondering how to manage your early-stage career? Tune in to catch three top tips from @Gainsight that will help you plan strategically! 📼 In this video, you’ll hear from Kelly DeHart, SVP, Sales & Account Management at Gainsight, and get her view on how to manage your early-stage career. 👉Gainsight is hiring! Check out the company’s open jobs: Project Manager (US remote!) https://bit.ly/GainsightProjectManagerPTF Customer Success Architect (US remote!) https://bit.ly/GainsightCustomerSuccessArchitectPTF CS Ops Content Specialist (US remote!) https://bit.ly/GainsightCSOpsContentSpecialistPTF 📼 Tip #1: Go Where There Is Growth. The first tip on how to manage your early-stage career means understanding the career path and trajectory of your new role when you first join a company. You’ll find that some companies do an excellent job of showcasing career paths and requirements for getting from one step to the next. Don’t lose sight of the fact that while you might start off making less money, your earning potential will increase as you take those next steps in your career. Maybe there’s one standout company that gives you more opportunities to do that. So when you’re selecting a role to apply for, definitely evaluate the path and consider going where there is growth. 📼 Tip #2: Improve The Status Quo. The next tip on how to manage your early stage-career is to take the initiative to identify improvements and make recommendations to improve the status quo. When you enter a company and begin onboarding, you learn the team processes and workflows. As a result, you have a unique, fresh-eyed perspective! After 30 or 60 days in your role, it would be fantastic if you could make recommendations on gaps you’ve discovered that could be fixed or optimized. In Kelly’s words, when she has new employees that offer meaningful insights, that really helps them jump out in her eyes and shows the potential of what they will contribute. One Last Key Tip On How To Manage Your Early-Stage Career The third tip is to maintain a broad view of your career options versus just setting your sights on one linear path. Some people know that they want to be in sales or customer success for their entire career. Still, many people look for an entry point to try and learn the ways of a business, in case they decide to course-correct and move into different parts of the organization later. So to achieve that, when you first start at a company, try to build bridges and cross-functional alignment with team members that cross your path. For example, if you're in sales, you could align with team members in marketing or customer success and learn what they do. Then, if you consider a switch to another department in the future, you’ll have a breadth of experience across the organization that will eventually make you more valuable on a leadership level. 📨 Are you interested in joining Gainsight?

Don't feel rushed. And if you feel like you need some time to collect your thoughts, let the interviewers know that. The team at Raytheon respects the fact that you want to give some consideration to your answer before jumping in! 📼 Tip #2: Come Prepared - In order to master your technical interview, it’s important to remember that not only is Raytheon interviewing you for a potential role, but you're interviewing the company as well. So show up with questions about not only the role, but the company culture too, and what you hope to gain from joining the organization. In Elisabeth’s words, so often they have candidates who, when offered the opportunity for them to ask questions, come up blank. It's very important for Raytheon to see you are as invested in the interview, as they are, by coming with some prepared questions! One Last Key Tip To Master Your Technical Interview With Raytheon The third tip is simply to OWN IT: what does Elisabeth mean by that? Show up knowing what you can bring to the organization, and be confident in what you've learned in your prior roles and education, and in what you can do that makes you a difference maker for the company. Everybody has a unique story and skill set. And when you show confidence in what you are capable of doing, as well as humility and where you know you need to continue to grow, you appear as a candidate excited to join the organization who in the future can be just so effective in their new role. 📨 Are you interested in joining Raytheon Technologies?
