Sallie Krawcheck: Focus on Gaining Experience

Sallie Krawcheck, head of 85 Broads, gives keen insight on not falling into the "hot career" trap.

"At this early stage of your career, there’s a real temptation to go into a field of work because your friends are or because it’s 'hot.' But there’s also an enormously small likelihood that it will still be hot 10, 20, 30, 40 years from now. So, rather than wedding yourself to an industry, instead shift your focus to gaining experiences and learning as much as you can, so that you build transferable skills."
