Hi Ella,

The best advice I have received has been to try new things and push yourself out of your comfort zone.

I can say hand on heart that every time I have tried something completely new and out of my comfort zone in my career it has taught me so much and also allowed me to progress further. If I hadn't challenged myself and tried new things for my career I would not have ended up where I am now - doing a job that I enjoy doing and getting to deal with real life challenges every day.

I hope this helps.

Thanks,
Pii

Pii recommends the following next steps:

  • Volunteer to work or even take a lead in a difficult project.
  • Take responsibility in a project or improvement that can help your team in the long run but isn't quite clear yet.
  • Once a week make yourself do something at work that you find challenging or tough, you'll soon get used to it and start finding it easy.

"Follow your heart" is what my daughter said when I was contemplating moving from a for-profit organization to a non-profit. This advice greatly increased my gratification every day.

Consider what you are passionate about so that you will love going to work!

With every good wish.

Hello Ella,

That’s a very good question and my answer goes back over 30 years when I was an immigrant high school student and did not know much about higher education. I was a good student and loved learning. My history teacher told me that I needed to go to college. At that point it didn’t matter what major, he just said get into a four year college and figure it out later. So I went to college as an undeclared major. I’m so grateful for his advise and guidance . That was the best career advise I got in my life.

Ana recommends the following next steps:

  • Take a career interest inventory to find out what you’re career interests are.
