Sometimes, especially when starting a new job or even just starting out in the corporate world, it can seem like just preparing and looking the part will make things fall into place. However, truly “making it” and being successful takes tenacity and hard work, according to Kelly Rover, Senior Manager, Accenture Technology.
Kelly applies this attitude to everything in her life, on both a personal and professional level. Here, she tells her story of how she became discouraged early in her career, but quickly decided she knew how to put the time and hard work in and make herself indispensable to her new team. She learned that it’s not the fanciest suit in the office or the most expensive saddle at the horse show that really matters. There’s truly no shortcut to the top; you have to put in the time and effort it takes to achieve success.
