What advice would you give to some­one con­sid­er­ing a ca­reer shift?

Red - - CAREERS -

“It isn’t about ap­ply­ing what you know to that busi­ness.

It’s first about let­ting go of what you know. When I started at Gap, I had to be will­ing to take a job that I felt was be­neath my level so that I could re­ally learn. We’re all mov­ing so fast that we ex­pect that if we’re at a high enough level we should be able to jump to that same level in an­other job. I think that as­sump­tion makes it harder to make those tran­si­tions.”
