Do you have any advice for someone who is scared to break out of their shell?
I landed an entry level job about two months ago at a small company. I’m easily one of the youngest, if not the youngest, employees working in the office. I have a lot of great ideas but I’m afraid of rejection.
I know I can shine in this job and offer more than what my responsibilities are. I just don’t want to make a fool of myself in the process.

Q#452 Employers want people who will take risks. Being wrong is part of the process. Just be confident and you will be fine. (@gradversity)
