Excerpt from Levo.com:
“‘Hard work alone equals success.‘ This couldn’t be further from the truth. There are so many factors that contribute to career success, such as being a team player, having soft skills, and fitting in to the company culture.” – Keisha Blair, co-founder of Aspire-Canada.
“Go to a small town and pay your dues before you jump into a big city, because there’s no way you’ll get a job without moving through that traditional chain.” – Lauren Chval, 24, community coordinator and writer.
“You probably shouldn’t be a writer because you get too nervous about your articles.” – Meghan Keane Graham, 35, chief content officer
“‘You should never leave a job unless you’ve been there for at least one year.’ Fortunately, I have ignored that advice a couple times in my life already. Had I either stayed in a position I was not happy in or not pursued a new opportunity, who knows where I’d be today. The stress and uncertainty of a new job was worth it.” – Michael Thrasher, 26, research analyst
