Reshaping the story of your career

Very interesting presentation by Joseph Liu given at TEDxCardiff. He does three things in this video.

  • He tells his own career story as he moved away from his medical career.
  • He identifies three lessons from career changes.
  • He provides questions to determine when it is time to move on.

This video is 17:38 minutes long which may seem long. But it sure packs a punch. I know you will get a great deal out of it.

Feel free to provide me feedback on my contact page.
