What is the Best Piece of Career Advice You Have Ever Received?
"Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself". This goes along with my aforementioned quote as well, but is a great note about creating the career you want. Always look for projects, committees, and even community engagement opportunities that will help test and shape your interests to position you into the career you want. As young professionals, I think it is key to take every opportunity and use it to your advantage, make the most out it, and learn from it.
