GA x Idea Lemon: Creating a Career You Love

General Assembly Chicago

Last Thursday, General Assembly (GA) Chicago facilitated a panel discussion about Creating a Career You Love. It was a fun, eye-opening, and dynamic experience. The panel was made of people from diverse backgrounds, sharing different life experiences but similar idea of not settling in an unhappy career.

The amazing panel of experts was made of:

Here are my key takeaways from the discussion:

  • Be yourself and be comfortable with your own opinions.
  • People buy products because they’re emotionally attached to it. Thus, people hire qualified applicants because they like them (an invitation for an interview already implies that you are qualified).
  • Be honest with yourself.
  • Don’t wait. Create opportunities for yourself.
  • Thinking of work outside of work should not be a burden.
  • You become who you pretend to be.
  • On being prepared: YOU’RE NEVER GONNA BE READY.
