Jake’s Take | Take Roles That Will Grow Your Skill Set
Last tweet Jake made a post on LinkedIn that really got people’s attention.
His post basically said, “Take jobs that will grow your skillset. Money will come later.” We understand this isn’t always an option for everybody, but if you have the ability to sacrifice income for growth, we highly recommend you do.
Money is enticing, but if you’re always chasing the bag you might not end up in a career you love. Jake encourages you to invest in yourself. Broadening his skill set is how he got to where he is today!.
