“Take a deep look at where you could possibly go…and if you don’t do that and take the near-sighted approach, you’ll be sorry.”
When starting your career, it’s best to think about where each opportunity can take you, rather than being envious of your peers. Terry Duffy, executive chairman & president of the CME Group gives a brief glimpse of how he entered the financial industry and addresses how his audience should utilize each opportunity they receive. One never knows where each job can take them; an entry-level position could one day lead to a top executive role. According to Duffy, we should not look at our careers in a “near-sighted” way, but instead look at long-term possibilities each job can eventually lead to.
