Living and Learning in Your Career

by Andrew R in Blogs

As time goes on, we live and learn in our life and in our career. Crazy thing is, we spend more time at the office than at home or with family and friends. So you would say that there is more self-discovery and personal learning done at work than any where else. And if you’re lucky you will learn and grow as a person in a forward-facing company that invests in your future and personal development. I hope my blog helps you clarify what you need in your career for personal growth and business education that you don’t get in school.

Throughout my career I have performed different types of roles in small and large companies. I also moved around in different Industries like retail, banking, distribution, and consumer goods. Even though they are different Industries, they all require process for the operations to run smoothly. That’s when I realized that Business Operations was my passion. I like Operations because you have your hands in each department and you get to see the business run like a well-oiled machine that is ready to take on anything. It has required me to think on my feet and motivates me to always improve how things are done.

In my career I have tried my best to choose companies that I can learn and benefit from, but also be a contributing and profitable employee in return. I also look for a bit of a challenge in the company to help foster my personal career growth and to make me a well-rounded leader in the field. So, when I received the opportunity to work with RK-TCS the decision for me was simple. One of the great things about RK-TCS is that I am part of an amazing management team which supports each other in making precise decisions. With this team by my side, I feel like  I can achieve anything that I set my mind to, and their support helps me get there. This is important to me as I am still early in my career and want to obtain personal growth that tends to lack in many companies now a days. I can truly say that by growing this business it has helped me think outside the box and really pushes me to hit my goals with the team. During the growth of this business I have become more confident with business decisions and the processes that comes along with it. For me, I have learned so much recently compared to past work experience. Working with RK-TCS has given me business education that you can’t get anywhere else.

I look forward to growing the business and helping clients to the best of my abilities. This step will help foster my career and strengthen me as an Industry leader. My advice to you is do what you feel you need for yourself to help you get to the next level of growth whether it be personal or professional. Take the time to think about and create an action plan because there is no better time than the present.

Overall, living and learning is a beautiful gift that we all can obtain throughout life and career. Learning will bring you great personal development and self-awareness that will only benefit you in life and your career development. As well, your growth as a person and the education you receive will prepare you for any obstacle that comes your way. Keep yourself asking– what are you living and learning that will take you to the next level in your career?
