"Take control of your career, because no one else is going to do it for you” says Jo Owen, partner at law firm Proskauer and this week’s guest on Bricks & Mortar. She joins Sarah Jackman to look back on her career to date and to reflect on the things that have enabled her to develop it.
She discusses the value of a mentor, grasping opportunity, being proactive and building a professional network. She also considers how good clients can bring great joy to the working day and provide exposure to different experiences, which can help to expand your skill set. Ultimately though, “you have to find your passion. Your career is – hopefully – going to last for many years and you want to enjoy it.”
