What three “gifts” would you give a 20-something if you were a “Forty-Godmother”? Here 40-somethings share three wishes to help a 20-something get a head start on the confidence to make decisions that are right for themselves. No more woulda, coulda, shoulda.
1. Don/t limit yourself to a job description. Be scrappy and resourceful. Color outside the lines.
2. Treat every job interview like you are pitching an investor. Why should they invest in you?
3. Act like the boss — you don’t need approval to ask for what you want. The only person you need to ask is yourself, “What do I want?”
