QUOTES FROM JEN
“The job description is not always the best indicator of what it actually takes to get into that role. That's probably the first mistake that I see people make because if you're relying on the job description, you're basically reading the bare minimums of the role”
“If you are networking, it helps to actually know people who are going to be on the team that you're going to be part of, because they already have the ear of the director that you might be trying to get a manager level role from.”
“You want to have a growth mindset, which is once you've hit really good at what you do, it's time to pass the baton to somebody else so that you can stretch out your arm and get the next baton.”
