Experience Quotes

Young And Old Business People - ExperienceExperience. It can drive us crazy. When we’re first starting out in our careers, we find that employers all want you to have experience but so few are willing to give it to you. And so, we chase it. We take jobs and projects that are less than, should we say, ideal, just so we can say we have experience. And as time goes on and we’ve become the ‘experts’ we always longed to be, we find that term experience haunting us again. We’re respected, sure. But there’s no denying that the term ‘experienced’ is often thrown our way as a euphemism for ‘old’. Ugh.

These quotes serve to remind us that, no matter how it comes to you or how the term is used, it’s important to remember that experience, along with a positive attitude, is as essential to our lives as air.
