10 Lessons Women Learned At Their First Jobs That They Still Use Today
Tamera Darden – Fashion Stylist and Blogger at Plan T Styling
What was your first job out of college?
Darden: Assistant Buyer at Macy’s.
What lesson or skill did you learn at that job that still impacts how you work today?
Darden: I learned that effective time management goes a long way. Writing a ‘to-do’ list is only half of it. Assign a realistic time frame for each project/assignment so you can stay focused and on track. It is okay if some projects take longer than others, but having a to-do list with deadlines is the first step to implementing effective time management.
