Joseph and I had a lively discussion in this podcast. Here are few key points:

  • Take action in advancing your career - career development is a path with many baby steps.  The most important thing is not to stop.
  • Collaborate with others to learn from others - it’s important to work with and learn from other subject matter experts
  • Embrace the North American culture - the quicker that you can integrate yourself in the North American working culture the faster your career can grow
  • Reach out to different cultural groups to stretch your social network and to gain a better understanding of different cultures
  • For cross-cultural professionals, Take advantage of your cross-cultural heritage and offer different perspectives to your team.
