Words of Advice for This Career…
You must become a trusted advisor. This business is all about giving comfort to people who are running organizations. They need to see you are confident without [being] cocky; you are a teacher some days, a coach others, and sometimes you are in operational roles.
… And on Choosing an MBA Program
Build lasting relationships while in your MBA program. One of my classmates in the MBA program had interned in my firm after the first year of study and recommended me for the job I now have. So, I am a firm believer that the MBA alumni relationships you build can support you throughout your career.
