What’s the best career advice you’ve ever had?

Over my career at various companies I have gotten great advice from managers and senior people within the organization. They have been helpful to where I am today.

Some of the advice has been specific to the needs of the business, but there’s been a few that I think about now and then.

The best career advice that I have gotten:

Alway maintain a positive image at work - no matter what’s going on in your personal life or what you know is going on behind the scenes at work.

The thing is that I have gotten similar advice from different people at various companies that I have worked at.

Things I have taken away from the advice

Every business has its up and downs. Bad times will happen just as often as good times. Stay positive and control what you can control.

Sometimes people will have bad days and being a cheerful person in the office can help calm things down.

Senior Team Members like people with optimism and will reward those that spread it around the company.

QA is a tough job because it’s important to communicate issues in a calm and understanding matter. Having a positive outlook can help communicate issues from saying its a critical issue to “customers will run into an issue if we did xyz…” They both communicate that there’s an issue just one is deliver in a more positive tone.

Any Good Career QA Advice?
