To get the most out of your effort and create more opportunities to grow, you need to think differently. “Think outside the box” may be an over-used term, but people talk about it for a reason. In this case, there’s a more descriptive and relevant analogy: as an employee of the new economy, you need to be able to show that a square peg can fit into a round hole with the right changes.
You can adapt your services to many clients’ needs, without changing your core values. After all, you can draw a circle inside that square (or vice-versa), cut out the difference, and still be left with the same piece of wood.
Whether it’s through help with CareerHMO or working on your own, creative thinking can help establish you as a valuable addition to any team you join.
