Care For Your Career (2/18)

List item

I had the privilege of working with Tina Tchen, then a dynamo litigation partner, and later an Assistant to President Obama, Executive Director of the White House Council on Women and Girls, and Chief of Staff to First Lady Michelle Obama. Tina was and is an incredible role model, and often told junior associates: “No one will ever care more about your career than you do.” It was so important for us to hear that you can’t wait for a fairy godmother to come along and give you career advice or smooth the path for you if you don’t do your part.
