At eLitmus, over 12+ years, we have seen many a careers make or break. It was our duty to share learnings so that freshers of today can become successful professionals of tomorrow.
Career is a marathon - don’t run it like 100 m sprint
Your career will be 35-40 year long. You cannot win it by running first 100m fast.
Your 2-5 year seniors still see it as a sprint, so its important to not only hear them but also reach out to 35 / 40 / 45/ 50 / 55 year olds so that you know what is in the race ahead.
So if you talk to a 25 year old professional, s/he will tell you to get ahead in career it is important is to change jobs or learning hot technologies.
In contrast a 45 year old professional will say how going that extra mile in your current job will ensure you have a job at age of 45. Why ? Because s/he is seeing 10+ years professionals being laid all around.
75% of engineers who start in IT industry this year will not have job 20 years later
