Beyond Entry-Level

Often, when someone asks if she can meet me for coffee so she can “pick my brain,” part of that brain-picking process is simply listening to me explain how I got my start and what I did to get to where I am now. This person is usually young and already has a year or two of work under her belt, and what she really wants to know is: “What do I need to do to get to the next level in my career?”
