Where: After graduating college, I moved to L.A. from the frozen north of New England without a job. I connected with another reformed East Coaster who ran a small consulting firm. After I interviewed with him and his team, they offered me my first job in financial consulting.
Pay: $24,000 per year.
Do differently? I was ambitious and wanted to quickly move to the next level of my career. Now I realize that instead of being hasty, I could’ve spent more time appreciating the immediate opportunity in front of me.
