Innocent or Ignorant? Both need taking advice.


Getting your first job is the beginning of a career where your personal skills such as effective communication, problem solving, managing people /work and handling pressure situations will be tested and will decide your Success in life and career growth. While you are still going to college it is a mandatory to acquire skills that employers are looking for as mentioned above and also learn technology tools, social networks usage etc. But don’t think you can learn these skills in the final year of college. Employable skills need time to practice and you cannot learn effective communication skills in English overnight in 10 days or a month. I advice you start assessing your skills right now and start learning them. For further advice contact us at skillsnest.

How you will ask advice at work is today’s topic for our blog.

When in trouble or not knowing what to do asking for help/Advice is a good thing.  Advice seeking has very significant benefits. It increases the possibility of finding better solutions to genuine problems, while creating a richer and more productive relationship. The importance of this issue should not be overlooked   How to ask for help — and how to do it right — is critical to doing your job well and setting yourself up for success. You may be afraid of looking dumb, but to be afraid to ask for and get the help you need is inexcusable. Typically we all ask for help or get clarifications by asking questions like ‘How do I do this’ or “how should I proceed with this” , “what to do next” etc but that won’t allow you to get the right help you are looking for.

Try the following tips

1. Start with what you know about the subject you need help with. Explain what you already know or at work how much you completed on your assignment (work) and where you are stuck with or what you are not able to do to finish the job.

2. Propose your thoughts on what you think about the solution and ask your boss for his/her advice if that is the right thing to do.  

 3. If you don’t know the direction to take or don’t know the solutions, ask for guidance. Instead of asking “What should I do?” ask specifically for the tools you’ll need to make that decision yourself, such as a recent example of a similar analysis or a template for a given task. Or, ask for a referral to someone who has worked on a similar initiative or project in the past.

In the vast majority of cases, you’ll get a lot further in your career by asking the tough, smart questions.
