Advice in general is just that: advice. We don't always have to take it, and sometimes-- when it comes to our career-- we're better off if we don't. Here's some words of not-so-great wisdom you should ignore.
- "Money isn't important." Hold out for the salary you deserve. If your desired lifestyle involves having money to spend, go after it.
- "You have to start at the bottom." If you're qualified for a more experienced job, go for it. Don't settle for an entry-level position if you know you're capable of a 'higher' one.
- "Follow your one passion." Rarely does someone have a singular passion. See what's out there, try things out and follow your gut.
- "Wait your turn." If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you want something, go after it.
