I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my career — its trajectory, how I got where I am, and some general reflection. Just call me Mulan?
For those like me who have worked at a few places, I think there’s always one that stands out, that helped shape us the most. It might not have been the one we worked at longest — maybe it was a brief stop.
For me, it was definitely a place. Despite working in two TV newsrooms, it was my two separate stints at Alabama’s largest website that has shaped me more than anything else. There, I learned to think strategically, seek out talent and mentor others, and go with my gut on what works for digital.
I believe I’ll take a little bit of al.com with me wherever I go.
