Susan Feldman, Co-Founder of One Kings Lane
“My dad told me that I could do whatever I wanted, as long as I was passionate about it. When you are passionate, you do a better job and succeed. I see this every day at One Kings Lane. The first thing we look for when hiring are individuals that are passionate about what we do at One Kings Lane. If somehow someone that isn’t passionate is hired—which doesn’t happen very often—they are vetted out very quickly and usually don’t last very long. Find a career that you love and are passionate about; it will make a difference.”
“I think that too often, entry-level employees will not take advantage of opportunities that are presented to them. If a project is not part of their job description, they may not do it. You should always be flexible—these opportunities are often a great way to expand one’s skill-set and even advance a career.
