Build Your Career on a Strong Foundation

To advance your career you can play the “breadth” card if you thrive on diversity and the “depth” card if specialization and deep expertise are your passion.

You can leverage one of these cards as your strength, but it’s difficult to do both…well. Featured Mentor Edwin Lau has strategically played the “breadth” card to seamlessly build his career across companies, functions, and multiple countries and cultures.

In this webinar, Lau, Microsoft Director of Market Intelligence, shares insights he’s gained from using a portfolio approach to acquiring skills and experience, including:

  • Assessing trade-offs between portfolio and vertical-lift approaches to career building
  • Developing a balanced portfolio of skills and experience
  • Honing your leadership skills
  • Building a global career
  • Creating your own role at a company
