What is the Best Piece of Career Advice You Have Received?

SWE members use social media daily to gather advice from like-minded professionals and learn more about what’s happening with our organization.

Members find a place to learn about career resources and SWE on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. This month, we asked SWE members about the best career advice they have received. Here is a selection from the insightful, humorous and poignant responses we received.

“Find what you want to work on and start doing it, don't wait to be assigned something.” - Laura F. via Facebook

“Every time you get a pay raise, save 10 percent of the raise. It is money you don't have yet, so you will never miss it.” - Cheryl B. via Facebook

“If you don't fail occasionally, you probably aren't really doing any work.” Amanda W. via Facebook
