Career Advice for Young Professionals

June 18, 2018


This video is excerpted from Jane Rojas's interview on "Cats in the Corner Office," brought to you by the UA Alumni Career Lab. Transcription When you choose a career, when you choose a job, you probably aren’t going to like it on day one. You may not like it for the first few years. But, it’s work. And that’s what work is: it’s hard. And the better you are at it, and the harder you work at it, and the success is building up… you have to start at the bottom but work your way up. If you keep switching jobs, you’re going to be constantly at the bottom. That makes life really tough. If you start at the bottom and you work your way up you’re going to like it more, and more, and more. As you get into it more, as you earn more money, you’re better at it. And then you’re breathing as opposed to being terrified every day of going to work. It’s not easy. If it was easy, if my job was easy, everyone would be doing it. But don’t shy away from what’s hard.
