Top 10 career mistakes to avoid

Rewards

No YUP/tokens awarded

Most people live in fear of making mistakes at their workplace — not the average human mistakes that everyone makes time to time, but the big, noticeable errors that ends up making everyone notice you and could cause a disciplinary notice or maybe even being let go from the company.

 

A sensational and highly visible error could draw a lot of attention, but thanks to the systems put in place in most workplaces, they are usually rare.

 

The mistakes you should be more apprehensive about are the ones that move at a much slower pace. But have no fear! here at Crowdholding we have compiled the top 10 worst mistakes, so you can be aware of them and avoid them.

 

1. Coasting through your job role

 


     

Perhaps you have been employed at your company for a few years and you feel rather comfortable in your role. This is not a bad thing at all, unless you stop making an conscious effort. You may think none of your work colleagues or supervisors are aware, but they are. Make sure you are constantly pushing yourself on a day to day basis. It is better to be noticed for putting in the effort rather than putting in no effort at all.

 

2. Allowing your skills to become obsolete

 

 

Technology is advancing at such a rapid rate, it is vital to stay on top of your area and not allow your skill set to become outdated. This is even more applicable as you get older and the industry continues to evolve. Learn new techniques, broaden your knowledge or even break into a different areas that is interconnected with your own role. Do whatever it takes to stay current and on top of the market, and you will be rewarded for it. 

 

3. Burning all your bridges

 

 

 

At some time in your life, things will go wrong. Whether this is in your personal life or your professional one. When this happens, initially it can be very tempting to walk away from the situation. The issue is this can come back to haunt you in the end. It is far better to have a reputation as someone who stays and fights to correct the issue than to be seen as someone who jumps ship at the first sign of trouble. 

 

4. Losing sight of the big picture

 

 

 

Even the busiest and most ambitious employees can get lost in their own plans, projects or their specific area of expertise. Focus on a single task can be a great trait to have, but if you focus too much you can become bogged down in the smaller details instead of looking at the bigger picture. Why are you doing this specific task? what benefits will it have to the company? Sometimes stepping back and looking at the bigger picture will show you the way to go, and allow you to avoid wasting time and effort on the wrong task. 

 

5. Not believing in yourself

 

 

 

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there” is a famous quote from Theodore Roosevelt and explains this next point perfectly. If you do not believe in your own abilities, how can you expect anyone else to believe in them? Remind yourself of your talents and that there is a reason they employed you in the first place. On the other hand over-confidence / arrogance can be a negative, so keep it in balance. 

 

6. Always seeing the glass as half empty

 

 

All businesses whether it is a startup or a billion dollar company don’t have much room for pessimistic employees who point out when something isn’t working. This does not mean you should ignore when things that are going wrong, but instead of offering criticism, try to come up with solutions.

 

 

7. Assuming the grass is greener

 

 

It is human nature to constantly look for better prospects, but sometimes assuming that another job / industry is more beneficial can be a negative. The issue here is that it is the unknown, and consistent job hopping never looks good on a CV or in an interview. If you truly want to move industries, research thoroughly and weigh up the pros and cons and if you are suitable for the role.

 

8. Not trusting your own intuitions 

 

 

Richard Branson who is one of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time stated “ “I rely far more on gut instinct than researching huge amounts of statistics.” We are not saying avoid information and data to back up your arguments, but ignoring your gut instincts cuts out a amazing source of creativity and innovation. 

 

 

9. Damaging your own reputation 

 

 

This is a no brainer really. Avoid doing any behaviour that will make anyone see you in a negative light. Some actions that will not be appreciated could be:-

 

  • Looking for a new job while at work — This can be done at home in your own privacy, you can be caught out very easily through online history, a employer calling you up while at work, or a work colleague simply catching a glimpse at your screen while walking by.

 

  • Office gossip — Gossip is called gossip for a reason, without knowing any of the actual information and making opinions on people without any facts. This will make you look bad, damage relationships with colleagues and alienate you. 

 

  • Lying — Lying is looked down upon in all parts of society, so why would it be acceptable in the workplace? If you make a mistake, own up to it do not try to cover it up as trust can be broken very easily and can take a very long time to be rebuilt.

 

 

10. Assuming your job will last forever

 

 

Sadly any job can come to an end at any point, and there are plenty of reasons why that are completely unrelated to your performance / work ethic. Simply give your job the best of your ability and be prepared to move to a new opportunity if you are forced to due to reasons out of your control. 

 

Avoid these ten points and you will have a great and successful career! Some of these points can also apply in your social life as well.

The first mistake "coasting through your job role" is the main sign that you should change jobs. You should not torture yourself and try to do something in the area that is so uninteresting to you that you stopped trying. So starting from this point, I can already discuss the half of the mistakes that you filed. I still consider my main mistake to be that I tried to work in an area that has ceased to be interesting for me. So I found a list of top rated resume writing services to choose one of them, order a resume and change jobs.
