About the Author

Katie Burke is the “chief people officer” at marketing and sales company HubSpot.



When just starting out in the workforce, you want to make decisions that help create a strong foundation for your career. Pick a company that’s growing and that wants you to grow. Current success isn’t the best indicator. Ask questions to determine whether the firm is going places or standing still. Once you’ve picked your company, take every opportunity to learn from the people around you. Watch, ask questions and take notes. View everyone as a potential teacher. Nurture professional relationships with people who know things you don’t, who offer a different perspective, and who offer encouragement or honest opinions when you need them. Be sure to thank everyone who helps you.
