So, I just read this awesome article on the best career advice from Jamie Finkral, who works at Pacific Life. The tips are really valuable, especially for those of us who might be unsure about our career paths or feeling stuck in a job we don’t love.
According to the article, Finkral emphasizes the importance of building relationships, both within your company and outside of it. Networking is key to finding new opportunities and growing your career. She also emphasizes the importance of taking risks and being open to learning new things, even if it feels uncomfortable at first.
One point that really stood out to me was her advice on being proactive in seeking out feedback. A lot of us might be hesitant to ask for feedback because we’re afraid of criticism, but Finkral says that it’s important to seek out constructive feedback so you can continue to grow and improve. This is something I’ve personally struggled with, but I’m going to try and be more proactive about asking for feedback moving forward.
Overall, I think the article is a great reminder that we’re all in control of our careers and that it’s never too late to make a change or try something new. It’s important to take risks, build relationships and be open to new opportunities. Who knows - maybe the next big thing is just around the corner!
