Looking for career advice from Katrina Busch, current President of Robert’s Communications? Well, you’re in luck because she’s given us five timeless tips that are easy to implement right away.
Don’t be afraid of anything — change, new experiences, new places, anything. Sometimes, the best experiences and opportunities come out of the unknown, so, don’t count anything out; use your ambitious persona and take advantage of everything that’s out there.
Be open to taking on any role
Being as versatile and well-rounded as possible will undoubtedly set you light years apart from someone who sticks to their roots and refuses to stray far from their comfort zone. Be open and learn as many different roles as possible. You never know, it could save your job some day.
