I was chatting with a friend a few months ago who wanted to move into Venture Capital (VC). Now, I hear many people who dream of being in the VC world. While I believe that we all have the opportunity to go after our dreams – a career in VC is more of a fantasy than a goal.
Well, I reconnected with my friend yesterday and guess what? He did it. He landed a job in a fast growing VC firm and he is on the partner track. Wow!
You may wonder: “How did he beat the odds and land such a dream job? I would say that the answer is two-fold: first, he builds and maintains strong relationships in a reciprocal way and two, he understands the value he brings and articulates it well. He delivers a double shot of credibility, generosity, and excellence. Who wouldn’t want to hire him!
What are you really capable of doing?
Have a great day,
