What is one piece of advice you wish you could have shared with your younger self? Don't be afraid of rejection and always be yourself! Rejection is part of the job search process and it's not because you aren't good enough. There might be other external factors involved that are completely out of your control. Also, just because the company has a recognizable name doesn't mean it is the best fit for you and your career. Stay true to yourself and your values and that will lead you to find a career and company you enjoy.
