Before You Choose a Workplace

There is no scientific process, no algorithm, to inspire you to do something extraordinary unless you do what you feel like doing.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Choose a career instead of a company


See what your career goals and learning objectives, whether you aspire to work in a multinational organisation or in a startup are. If it is not a good match of your career goals, you are in oblivion. 

Explore the soul of an organisation, see if you can marry her

Choosing an organisation is like choosing a bride, wisest choice you ever make. 

Seek what inspires you


There is no scientific process, no algorithm, to inspire you to do something extraordinary unless you do what you feel like doing.

PEOPLE

People make organisations. Do not fall into the trap of tags, look for empathetic, hardworking and inspiring people.

Money is short-term, Career is long-term

Money is a temporary solution to a permanent problem.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
