I recently saw this snapshot in my newsfeed of the welcome letter new Apple employees receive when they first join the company. Pretty inspiring. Not a lot of companies write letters to new recruits in such a motivating, mission-driven way. It takes a combination of company track record, confidence, high purpose, clear vision, and a little bravado to rally new troops like this.
I think all of us aspire in our careers to do important, meaningful, and impactful work that touches other people’s lives and makes us proud. It’s why Apple appeals to this nobler self when welcoming new recruits to the company. It’s why I founded this website. And it’s what I hope all ambitious, passionate, impact-minded young professionals can achieve in their own careers.
Work hard. Learn well. Do big things.
