Finding a career that you love and that you are great at often takes longer than you think it will. It can be hard to connect your interests and strengths with professional pursuits. Or maybe you haven’t had the opportunities—or encouragement—to discover what those interests are in the first place.
At Hats & Ladders, our own career paths have been full of twists and unexpected turns. Lucky for us, it’s worked out: our early interests in music, history, and games gradually led to rewarding careers in technology and education. But it wasn’t always easy, and more support along the way would have helped a lot.
