I enjoyed working in an office that was just starting up. My co-workers were energetic and invested in the firm's mission to improve community public services.
What I wish was different
I sometimes with that I could have been more active in leveraging my local network to bring more of the community behind our offices mission like some of the other employees did.
Employers notice when you show initiative and direction. it gives the impression that you enjoy working in the office as much as they do and it demonstrates your leadership. Which could lead to one taking on more responsibility.
