10 pieces of advice to ace the starting point of your career!

So LinkedIn reminded me that it was my two-year work anniversary at Rakuten this week.

Product Management at Rakuten was my first full-time job and also my first foray into a large organization. Over these 2 years, there have been a lot of realizations, mistakes, conversations, and successes, and it got me reflecting.

This month, many fresh grads will be starting new careers, so these are the 10 points of advice I would give them.

Caveat — A lot of it is specific to medium or large organizations, but the advice can be applied to all types of careers.

So here goes -

  • Things could be slow in large organizations, so don’t expect drastic changes. However regularly change something small. It will still have an exponential impact, as it starts becoming part of the regular processes.

Good luck to all!
