I recently saw this snapshot in my newsfeed of the welcome letter new Apple employees receive when they first join the company. Pretty inspiring. Not a lot of companies write letters to new recruits in such a motivating, mission-driven way. It takes a combination of company track record, confidence, high purpose, clear vision, and even a little bravado to rally new troops like this.
I think all of us aspire in our careers to do important, meaningful, and impactful work that touches a lot of lives and makes us proud. It’s why Apple appeals to this nobler self when welcoming new recruits to the company. It’s why I founded CareerHoot. And it’s what I hope all ambitious, passionate, impact-minded young professionals can achieve in their own careers.
Work hard. Learn well. Do big things.
