Career Planning Part III

When starting out a career you need to be aware that at this point you are more of a liability to most companies.  Experience has taught most business owners to view young adult workers with an extra dose of suspicion.   Most young adults don’t know how to work hard and expect their bosses to cater to them.   I hope you know this but when you go to work you are paid to work VERY hard.  The amount of work demanded of you will seem unreasonable at first, but you will grow into it.  As you gain experience, you will become more productive and able to get more done in the same amount of time.  Add this to a good work ethic and over time you will become a very valuable commodity.  As a future star, you may have the wonderful experience of having companies bid for your services.  Listen to this verse:

Proverbs 22:29
Do you see someone skilled in their work?  They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.

It feels good to be respected and highly valued, but you are going to have to pay your dues by working hard at your craft or profession.  This will take time, patience and hard work.
