Our friend, speaker and author Sally Hogshead, wrote a book called Radical Careering. We love it so much that anyone who starts a position here at Burdette Ketchum gets a copy of it on their first day. Sally writes that “Careerists are people who take action to become the most powerful, valuable, fulfilled version of themselves.” We like careerists. “They view a job not as a task or a duty, but a step in a long-term journey.”</span>If you’re a careerist and you’re interested in bringing your talents to our agency to help us do big things for great clients, please contact Mark Stevens at [email protected]
