As a fresh graduate, don’t hesitate to accept any task that comes your way. As a beginner, be open to accepting new responsibilities, whether big or small as it helps you to build confidence and learn on the job. Therefore, never start your career with an attitude that why should you do a particular work. Remember, successful people never consider any work big or small. They believe in delivering their best and learn from it. Your talent can take you farther in your career.
