10 things you should know about work

    1. Always negotiate

    Yes, even if you get an amazing offer. Yes, even if you have an offer from your dream company. Negotiating won't hurt you unless you act like a jerk.

    2. Your boss, your company, your peers don't care about your career.

    The only person that cares about your career is yourself.

    3. If your company asks you to do something extra, make sure you're getting something in return

    4. If you go to a conference, offer to share what you've learned with the group when you come back

    5. Set expectations always

    When do you need to get something done? What is it going to look like? When are you going to check in?

    6. The best way to get more money is to jump around

    Unfortunately, once you're in the system (at a company), raises are crap.

    7. The best way to get promoted is to jump around

    Sometimes your personal brand needs a 'reset' by leaving your current company and going to another

    8. In your first 18 months, bring all of your expertise and creativity to your job

    I read somewhere that after the first 18 months, you quickly become 'accustomed' to the work and stop trying to find ways to improve

    9. You might not know the answer, but if you know the question to ask you're more than halfway there

    10. All work environments have some toxicity - some work environments are more toxic than others. Be careful if you're going to another job - the new job might be even more toxic than your old one.
