HOW TO BUILD a CAREER
A successful career – that means different things to different people at different times!
My concept of a successful career was evolving over time, and while my values remained the same throughout, my interests and priorities changed, just like the world around me was changing.
Looking back, my 4 Tips for a successful career would be:
Try to get your first job with a top company, one that you admire. There you can learn from the best, get interesting challenges and it will always look great in your CV!
Delivery is key, so make sure you are absolutely clear about what is expected from you and communicate regularly about progress.
Take ownership of your personal development and line up support from your partner, employer, networks etc. Learning new skills, both technical and leadership, is fun and a wonderful investment in your future.
Be flexible and have the courage to try different jobs/companies/countries until you find out what you are really good at – usually, that is also what you enjoy most, and then you will be unstoppable!
