IT pros reveal the best career advice they ever received
- 14 January, 2013 14:45
In today's culture, advice on nearly any topic - relationships, health, career - is just a mouse click, touchscreen tap or Siri query away. There's even a Web site called shouldidoit.com that promises to help you make decisions in your daily life. But while you can get some good insights on the many expert and general discussion forums that pop up on the Web, there's often a sense that something is missing from that experience. Call it the human touch.
Indeed, no matter how deep your social network is, or how many devices you have to access the Web, nearly everyone can still recall life-changing advice that they obtained the old-fashioned way: straight from someone they knew.
We asked three top IT execs to share the most useful piece of career advice they've ever been given. Here's what they said:
