Mentor Spotlight: Getting comfortable with being vulnerable
We all reach dead ends sometimes; those moments where we feel a bit lost and can’t seem to find our direction.
One of the best pieces of advice we’ve heard to get yourself out of a rut is to ‘keep learning’.
Those are the words of Kema Davies, UK Early Careers Recruiter at Microsoft.
From her own experience, she knows it can be really tough to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Sometimes, it takes vulnerability in allowing someone else to give you a little nudge to help turn things around.
Luckily, Kema has some sound advice on how to do this.
She shared exclusive insights into her own career journey during a mentor session with Millie, HR Solutions Apprentice at Multiverse. Being in the same industry, they had lots to talk about, but whatever role you’re in or hoping to get into, Kema’s message is clear:
“Feel the fear and do it anyway! Continuing to learn can help to build self-confidence, giving you an opportunity to reflect on your achievements.“
