My Lessons for Graduates
If I were my younger version now I would have made some changes based on my current knowledge and experience. First and foremost I would have set clear career goals and read more books at that time. In my 20’s I didn’t really think too much about continuous improvement on key skills on the job so I wish I had done that earlier. I would have developed better negotiation skills to get exactly what I wanted. When I landed my first job there were many aspects within the job description that was not easily understood by me, however I gave my best every single day and that helped. I would have also used the internet to my advantage.
