"Fundamental to strong career and professional development is continual evaluation of your skills/strengths, interests and values and how they align to the position and organization where you work. I recently made a job transition myself through a lot of self-reflection on what is most important to me in my work life. Don't be afraid to explore and be patient for the right opportunity to come along. And I would remiss not to mention mentorship and the important role mentors have played in my professional career and also networking. Be fearless and professional in building a strong Princeton network for yourself."
