10 Lessons on Career Success: A Slideshow

At Highly Relevant, we recently implemented a monthly training program – each month one member of the team trains the rest of the team on a particular topic.  Our “curriculum” covers a wide gamut of topics including WordPress, social media, online advertising, and so on.

I did the first training earlier this month on the topic of “Career Success.”  Through the last decade or so, I’ve learned a lot about building a successful career through my own experiences and a ton of learning through reading, seminars, audiobooks, etc.  Since everyone on our day-to-day team is under the age of 30, I thought it’d be helpful for me to share some of the lessons that I’ve learned with them.

Check out my presentation on “10 Lessons for Career Success.”
