Career Tip Thursday for new grads: In your lifetime, you’ll (most likely) spend more time at work than you do in any other activity except sleeping.

Career Tip Thursday: Instead of wasting your time trying to be someone you’re not (“fake it till you make it”), invest effort in developing the skills and gaining the experience you’ll need to be successful in whatever career path you choose.

Analyze your strengths and weaknesses, create a career development plan, seek out mentors and ask for support from your manager.

Learn how to be the best person you can be and how to be comfortable with all your unique qualities. Because life is too short to spend even a minute on trying to “fake it till you make it.”
