Learn This When Leaving School for Work

If you are transitioning from being a student in higher education to entering the workforce, you are in for some culture shock. One example of this comes in the form of how others react to your statements. In the classroom, your instructor gives you a problem and you think through it and state your answer. The instructor knows the answer and can instantly tell that you are correct. In the business world, no one has an answer key. Thus, if you are unaccustomed to sharing your full thought process then your conclusion may seem like a non sequitur and you will be disappointed when you get stares instead of kudos for cracking a tough one.

Understanding this difference is important. To overcome this issue, be sure to share the logical steps you went through to arrive at your conclusion. Think if of like a consulting case interview question.
