Say YES!  to the job when it has been offered to you by a company. Although you want to start your own business, be patient. When the time is right, you can assimilate and practice the skills you have learnt at the corporate firm in your future company.

Another key ingredient is to bring your enthusiasm to your new job. Bringing new ideas to the table, staying a little late and demonstrating your zeal for the job are a few pointers that will make you shine.

Always be prepared, whether you get the job or not. When you are confident and are able to deliver a convincing portfolio at your interview or meeting, it is a sure fire way of securing your progression in the company.

Tasks are time sensitive. As a new hire, make sure to be on target and show them how capable you are during your probationary period. As the company has hired you, they want to make sure that you do well by them.
