Strategies valuable in navigating your early career:

  • Donʼt over-optimize for the resume.
    • You can do what you actually want to do much sooner, without that perfect resume.
  • Follow your interests — but not in a vacuum.
    • Make sure you (1) are good at it, (2) enjoy it, and (3) people value it
  • When you’re comfy for too long – shake things up
  • Work with great people. Your co-workers will significantly influence the trajectory of your career by:
    • Which skills you build
    • How high you set your bar
    • The quality of the network you build
  • Never stop learning.
    • Good things happen when you follow your interests and learn for learning’s sake.
