About this Episode

"Do a good job, and people will notice" is a common piece of advice we get from professionals, but has that ever worked out?

This week on See It To Be It, we talk to Managing Director and Head of Women on the Move at JP Morgan Chase, Sam Saperstein. She asks us to go beyond "doing a good job" and pursuing challenges that battle biases in the work enviornment.

Saperstein on her experience facing sexism in the work place:
_13:12 "That was incredibly frustrating and jarring for me. I had never been in a situation like that before. I hadn't expected that, and so when I came back, I really had to set the core streets that I was back. I was committed. And I was going to need a new job because I was not going to be working for that manager, and it did take some time, but that's exactly what did happen. And I ended up with a great role that I really did enjoy and I think really communicated that it was unacceptable behavior that no boss should ever do that.."

Saperstein on how mentors/coaches can help you reach your professional goals:
_20:08 " ..Anyone can help you with a certain problem, but it's the sponsor who's really going to pull you off and give you that next opportunity and have your back as you progress in your career.
So as you're kind of doing your good work, make sure you are finding those people who can help you."
