This week, Joe Moye, chief executive officer of Capgemini Government Solutions, shared some words of advice for someone who is just starting their career and has aspirations to lead a firm:

“I think it's important for people at a very early age in their careers to take their career into their own hands. Certainly, companies provide a great avenue to develop and improve your skills and experience, but I think at the end of the day, it's up to the individual to make some conscious decisions on the various directions you want to take your career, the training you need to ultimately diversify your skills and experience. Reach out to the company and be very proactive about positioning your goals and expectations from a career development perspective. I personally feel that over the last couple of decades, many corporations have cut back on formal training and the necessary steps  which used to exist in helping structure career development and career paths for people. I believe that with this formal development not being as readily available, it's absolutely incumbent upon folks to take initiative to really leverage the developmental and training assets of the companies that they work for  but do what you need to do to control your own destiny by being proactive about your development plans. Map out your progression and growth to expand your experience and achieve the ultimate goals you have from a professional standpoint.”
