I recently accepted a position as a Marketing Coordinator & Videographer at Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP (MSK) in Los Angeles. This opportunity to secure my first promotion and to work for one of LA’s most prestigious entertainment law firms came to me unexpectedly, and I am beyond thankful it did. My first day on the job was July 20th, and I’m thrilled to be moving to LA this month for the position.
Back in June, my supervisor at my first job (“M&R”), Jessica, told me she was leaving our firm. A thorough synopsis of her new role at MSK
ensued, and just when I was beginning to question why I was given such a lengthy description, she concluded with, “I want you to come with me.”
Jessica went on to say how floored she was by the level of determination and diligence I put into my work at M&R, and she couldn’t imagine moving forward without us making that move together.
I have no doubt that my experience in Delta Sigma Phi provided me with the professionalism that ultimately brought me this promotion and this life change. Just as Jessica and I make a great team, so do the brothers of Alpha
Iota every day in becoming better men and better leaders. The Gordian Knot reminds us that success “depends upon the merit of the individual members and their ability to function with others.” It’s a nice reminder that even in the advancement of one’s career, the consideration of others is a factor that can accelerate success. Considerations like this one are the small steps toward building a future. It’s ironic in a way, but the best advice is never the typical advice. I promise you: the small steps matter, and they do add up.
