How do you score that dream job in a U.S. company? Focus on two things: being independent and taking initiative.

🤫 The Value of Independence and Teamwork Balance

In the U.S., companies love it when you take charge of your work but still play well with the team. Imagine you see a problem and jump in to solve it by yourself. That’s crucial. 

Being a team player is just as important. You might come up with a cool idea on your own, but then you must share it with your team to make it even better.

🔥 Cultivating a Culture of Empowerment and Trust 

U.S. companies want you to take charge of your work. They give you the space to try new things and trust you to get the job done. How? By letting you choose when you work or making it easy to chat with the bosses.

So, what can you do? Take the lead on your tasks. If you’ve got an idea, go for it and show what you can do. You should be stepping up, sharing ideas, and implementing those new ideas. Take charge of your career!

🔑 Practical Tips for Demonstrating Independence and Initiative

👉 Start by setting clear personal goals. 

👉 Know what you want to achieve each week and go for it. 

👉 Keep learning. 

👉 Don’t forget to ask for feedback.

👉 After finishing a task or project, reach out to colleagues or your boss. It shows you’re serious about growth and ready to take on more. 

This approach isn’t just about getting noticed; it’s about building a reputation as someone who’s driven and ready to lead.
