Collaborate don’t compete. I think something a lot of people fear is the opportunities out there are snatched by someone else, and I can definitely sense it when other students are hesitant on helping others with their interviews and job search when it’s the same firm and role. To be honest, I was like that too because I constantly felt imposter syndrome where I didn’t feel as qualified as people around me.
However, they are not really stealing opportunities from you. The same also applies to women bringing each other down instead of working together to succeed together. Not just women either but this applies to everyone. Why does everything need to be a competition? It doesn’t!
Everyone is on his or her own journey and the more we help each other, the more we actually thrive together. The world is very lonely to live in if everything is a race. What kind of person do you strive to be?
