Networking, Networking, Networking. We are always told that this is the only way we’ll ever find a job. And while that isn’t entirely true… it’s pretty darn close.

Born from our deepest emotions, come our passions. They are personal and can come from feelings of sadness, anger, happiness, and love. So find the thing that you just can’t shake, the thing that just makes you undeniably feel stronger than you ever have before. Whether it’s biking, skiing, backpacking, film-making, yo-yo-ing, or playing guitar. Whatever crazy thing it may be- grab hold of your love for it.

You were hired for a reason: Remember, don’t be so hard on yourself. The truth is that out of all of the resumes and profiles, you were picked and hired because your boss wanted you and your input. So, not only does your boss think you’re smart enough to speak up about the ideas you have, they probably expect you to do it more often.
