Please share advice for young women considering or starting a career in print… Which includes design, sales, marketing and all jobs within.
Know your worth, that is something that I’ve reminded myself ever since my very first job. Believe in yourself!
How have mentors helped your personal and career development?
I do believe it is necessary to have a support squad, like my sales coach, my female sales colleagues, as well as my CSR. Without the help and encouragement from all of them I wouldn’t be able to do my job. It was important for me to be able to connect with my coworkers so I could learn and have others to go to for advice being new in the industry.
My father has been in an executive sales role his entire career. I seek advice from him as well, he reminds me to “be your own solution”. I think as a female this advice has taken me far, everyone can interpret it differently. I have applied it to my personal life as well as my career.
