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