Our 6 insider tips for starting a career as an international trainee at Riverty

Would you like to start your career as a trainee full of energy and climb the career ladder? We’ll show you how. These six tips will tell you how you can best succeed. 

#Tip 1: Successful self-management

Self-management is the name of the game these days. Especially with remote work, self-organization and discipline are even more important than before. Set priorities and use to-do lists to keep track of your upcoming tasks. If you are properly organized, you can take control of your workday and ensure that you never miss a deadline. 

#Tip 2: Learn to assess yourself

Are you aware of your strengths and weaknesses? Then you are already a long way ahead of many others. The better you know yourself and your skills, the more likely you are to strive for a career goal that is both realistic and perfectly suited to you. With a concrete goal in mind, you automatically show more motivation and willpower.

#Tip 3: Build a network

No matter what company you work for, this is a tip that you will be given more than once. Try to make as many connections as you can. It’s always good to make contacts and have lots of people to talk to. You will quickly realize how valuable the professional, but also the informal exchange is in professional life. With a confident demeanor and great work, you will notice that your expertise is increasingly demanded.

#Tip 4: Know and communicate your goals

Especially when entering the professional world, it is advantageous to have a concrete career goal in mind. It is important to set a long-term goal. For example, where you see yourself in five or even ten years. At the same time, you should define short-term goals that will help you get closer to your overall goal. Once you have set your goals, you should also discuss them with your manager. They can guide you along the way and provide you with the necessary support. 

#Tip 5: Have a high-quality standard – but mistakes are human

Especially at the beginning of their careers, many newcomers have their own aspiration not to make any mistakes and to do their work to the fullest satisfaction of their supervisors. It is good to have a high-quality standard for your performance. However, you should be aware that mistakes are part of the job. Without them, we would not be able to learn and develop. Of course, mistakes should not become the rule. Make sure that you work cleanly and precisely. This will not only show your colleagues what you are capable of, but also that they can rely on you – a benefit in the professional world. 

#Tip 6: Work/life balance: Ensure a balanced daily routine

Even though work is a big part of our lives, don’t forget to invest your time in other things as well. Use the evenings, weekends and holidays to recover, create a balance and recharge your batteries – both physically and mentally. Only if you are sufficiently recovered and have enough energy reserves will you be able to give 100% again.
