“Apple’s Angela Ahrendts has told of her ‘life-altering’ decision to quit the fashion world in her first public comments since starting as the tech giant’s retail chief,” Sky News reports.
“In a personal blog post on her LinkedIn page, the 53-year-old American writes about the ‘exciting, challenging and sometimes disorienting’ start to a new job, less than two months after starting at Apple’s Cupertino, California, HQ,” Sky News reports. “Along with advice for anyone moving to a new business, she jokes: ‘Silicon Valley can feel like a country unto itself!'”
“‘At some point in your career, maybe you too have made the life-altering decision to start anew. If so, you know firsthand how exciting, challenging and sometimes disorienting the first 30, 60, 90 days can be. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately myself,'” Sky News reports. “She advises other new employees to ‘stay in your lane’ – meaning concentrate on using the skills you were hired for, rather than trying to master the unfamiliar elements of the job.”
