My first day was a long time ago, but I would tell myself to roll with the changes. Breathe. It's a constantly evolving industry and Google has been right there moving with it. It can be challenging, but it's all worth it because you truly feel like you're making a difference in the world.

I wish that I had more courage to take initiative for things I was passionate about and the direction of my own career earlier on. The didn't prevent me from taking on new opportunities, but certainly did not make these opportunities clearly available to me. I wish I would have learned earlier that I was responsible for driving my own career in the direction that I wanted it to go. Would certainly give this advice to others!

I would have reminded myself that I am driven by constantly learning new things and working on new projects, and I should continue to switch things up regularly to stay sharp now that I am a part of a big company. I would also remind myself that networking is key!

I would have negotiated harder when I was given my offer on salary.

Google is a great environment for self-starters and entrepreneurs. No one will tell you what time to be at your desk or check in to see what time you left - or even care if you worked from home. The focus is truly about getting the work done.
