Today, Joan runs a multi-billion dollar division of TE Connectivity. But if you ask her, she’ll tell you that getting there was anything but straight forward.

Nonetheless, by pursuing jobs that genuinely interested her (from education to healthcare to technology) and by taking big leaps when opportunities arose (from communications manager to White House appointee), she’s built a career and life that works for her.

Today on Your Career, Your Terms: Pivot Points, Joan shares her best advice on landing that first “stretch” job, thriving in a dual-career, multi-state marriage, and gaining the confidence to lead, even when you don’t have all the answers. (See Joan’s full bio here.)

Listen in to hear how Joan landed her first reach job – with a little help from her mom.
