Dear Students and Juniors,
As you embark into your internships this year, you will come across many challenges that will put you to the test and even make you question whether you should pursue this career or not. It’s okay, that’s just part of the journey.
This is a great opportunity for you to shine, to stand out and to make a good impression, you’re very lucky actually, I know many people who would kill to start with a clean slate.
As you start your first jobs and internships, don’t forget about why you chose this career path in the first place. Don’t be afraid to proudly show your passion and excitement, because after all, that is what every CD and Exec is looking for in you, don’t disappoint them.
I meet juniors who are dull and uninspired and that makes me sad because I know they will have a hard time surviving past a couple of years. For those of you who really are passionate, I’m here to tell you that passion is your secret ingredient, it’s all you need to get a foot in the door. Trust me.
When I started in this business, I knew I had a lot to learn and a long way to go but I remember someone telling me that passion was all I needed so I listened carefully and applied that to my job search. It worked, and it still works to this day.
When you’re eager, excited and passionate, people notice you, see themselves in you and most importantly, want to work with you. Passion is what keeps you inspired and keeps you going, don’t lose it.
