LivingSocial CEO Gives Career Advice

LivingSocial CEO Gives Career Advice: Find Out What Makes You Tick

You've most likely bought a LivingSocial coupon, but did you ever wonder who the person behind the online coupon company was and what it took to make the company a success? Tim O’Shaughnessy, 29, is the young cofounder of Groupon's largest competitor who always knew he wanted to work for himself and to build something for consumers. Tim shares some career advice with the Wall Street Journal:

While I’m grossly underqualified to be giving out advice, here it goes: Don’t figure out where you want to work, or even what industry you’d like to work at. Figure out what makes you tick. What gives you a really big rush? Answer why you like things, not what you like doing . . . and then apply it to your work life. Also, just because you’re graduating, don’t stop learning. Read more books than you did in college. Most people don’t actively try to make themselves smarter once they’re done with school. If you do, and they’re not, you’re really well-positioned to succeed in whatever you do.
