Careers don’t just happen. They require personal commitment. Managing your career is perhaps the most important skill to be developed as you progress through any organization. It is a delicate balance between building strong relationships across all levels of an organization while recognizing unique organizational attributes, culture and influences.

I also went through a phase of playing Teacher wherein I created attendance lists with dozens of made-up names and basically did nothing but take roll, over and over for hours on end.
Throughout childhood, I dreamt of working. Surely many of you can relate.
