Our FIRST guest returns. On the second episode of Radically Honest Season 2, your host Dasom Lee receives invaluable career advice from global consulting leader and former KPMG Australia and China Partner Gary Nowak. He’s hired, trained, mentored, and laid off. Two decades of climbing up the corporate ladder later— here’s what he wish he knew at the beginning of his career.
It’s all about your intangible skills. Why do you think companies conduct behavioral interviews? Difficult to grasp and harder to measure, your intangibles will make you a subtle superstar. Build relationships with those with the power to impact your career. Ask for honest feedback (brace yourself: criticism may ensue). Always negotiate your salary. Ask targeted questions to cultivate self-awareness. “If I were to be promoted tomorrow, what would have to change?”
