Raaj Parikh Reveals What Young Professionals Should Know About Corporate America

In the cutthroat world of corporate America, people like Raaj Parikh ( ) are shining examples that show the world that success can be coupled with empathy.

He has worked with industry giants such as Grant Thornton, Google, PwC as well as RSM and is currently enjoying his role as a Corporate Accounting Manager at Cushman and Wakefield.

He thinks that one of the most important things for young people to realize is that they are valuable to their firm because of their potential.

According to Raaj Parikh, companies and corporations are willing to take more risks with younger employees. Part of the reason is that their training doesn’t cost nearly as much as their older counterparts.

He feels that those starting out run the risk of being pigeonholed into a specific, highly specialized role. Just as one must know when to enter, one must know when to exit.

“Folks who don't quit at the right time for themselves, quickly realize that the day-to-day job that they’re doing doesn't really align with what they want to do in the future.”

It is for this reason that Raaj Parikh encourages anyone to pivot sooner than later.

“The more you cost your organization, the less likely they’ll be to take you on and retrain you.”

He thinks that young professionals would do well to find a mentor or someone in their organization that has their best interests at heart.

“I think it’s time for anyone to recalibrate if they find that they can't talk to someone that manages them, or if their superiors are not really endorsing them and looking out for them.”

A firm believer in hard work, Raaj Parikh thinks that coming to work with a positive attitude and putting in extra hours when needed is the key to success for anyone starting their journey in corporate America.

“I think as long as someone embraces development points, and is intentional , they should have no problem rising up the ranks.”

His number one advice to beginners is: never be afraid to ask.

“This can be related to compensation, promotions and whatever one wants. I believe that you get what you ask for. This holds true not just for the corporate world but for life.”

Parikh thinks that rather than waiting around for another, an individual should ideally be driving their own career. Especially when it comes to compensation.

“My suggestion is that you should not shy from asking for what you think you’re worth. If you are consistently owning tasks beyond the scope of your role it is only fair that you eventually receive the related title and compensation.”

Raaj Parikh ( ) says that oftentimes the interview process is fairly expensive in and of itself. Coupled with the difficulty of finding the right fit, it gives a great potential employee quite a bit of leverage when it comes to bargaining for compensation.

“Often, the HR functions of an organization already have a built-in buffer to offer potential fits.”
