"A few pieces of advice I like to share with colleagues just starting out in their careers are invest in yourself, build new skills, don’t be afraid to reinvent yourself, and don’t be afraid to question something. Don’t feel like you must stick with the skills you learned in college. Each job you have, every mission you support, keep growing and learning."
