Dear Students,
 
While ambitious international students like you might not typically look to Taylor Swift for early career advice, her phenomenal success reflects not only singing and performance talent but also a high level of self-awareness and self-management, from which aspiring professionals like you and your friends can learn.
 
Taylor’s tips include the value of preparation (allowing her to be spontaneous, rather than stressed under pressure), the importance of establishing and exceeding high expectations (because managing perception(s) is everything) and the significance of taking the long view about one’s career (to maximize every moment of opportunity).
 
Swift shares stories of her career that are packed with wisdom every leader can learn from.
