When I worked at IMlogic, a Boston based startup,  I had the chance to setup a new office in India.  The experience was incredible, for a variety of professional and personal reasons and I am very happy I did it.  However, one lesson I learned during the 6 months in India is the old cliché – “out of sight, out of mind.”  This has forever shaped how I chose the location of my job.

Career Advice I Wish I Knew Earlier 

Hello.  I started this blog to distribute some of the best career advice I have been given over the many jobs I've had.  I've been fortunate to work for and with some great bosses like Brian Halligan, Francis DeSouzaNancy Kamei, and Rick Roberge, and some unique companies, like The Boston Consulting Group, that invest heavily in making each employee a success even after leaving the firm.

The advice and training I received here stands in contrast to my experiences with some not-so-great bosses and companies I've also worked for.  I'm continualy amazed at how valuable good advice has been in my career so I hope to pass on the good advice, and insights from mistakes I've made, via this blog. 

Thanks in advance for your comments, particularly when you can improve upon the ideas posted.
