Career Tip

"Love what you do! Do not just take a job because the money is good, or you like numbers (but you really don't), or because your parents said it's a good idea. Take the position because you have the drive, feel passionate about the subject matter, and want to make a difference. If you do it that way, you will get paid for doing something you love and it will never seem like a job. Good luck!"
