My “best” career mistake? I’m still early on in my career, so I haven’t had a ton of opportunities to make a lot of them, yet. But, off the top of my head, maybe flying across the country to take an unpaid, 40-hours-per-week internship last summer.
A lot of people (including my mentor) told me I shouldn’t work for free, but I ended up learning a ton, making some really strong connections, and getting some amazing experiences. (And this summer, my internship is paid—woo hoo!)
