There have been many times where I’ve been asked for “career advice”,
especially after a talk.
I usually suggest them to ‘build a repertoire of things you have done,
things you are capable of, things you like to do’. But I’ve never
really been sure of this advice nor do I feel I have the credibility
to answer such questions.
The good thing is that I have now found something to point them to – Garr
presentation on a career advice book. This presentation explain things
very well and is so beautifully done that it can capture the attention
of a young mind:
The other resource I have found useful is Aaron Swartz‘s “How to Get
a Job Like Mine”.
Cultivating a good career is like creating the Mona Lisa. The right
tools and strategies will only get you partway there – the soul of
the artist is necessary to create something worthwhile.
