Build you own content equity. As soon as you gain some experience, start speaking about it. Create a blog, podcast, youtube channel, or whatever medium you like. It won't help your career early on, but it will give you exponential return in the long run.

@fabian_maume That is a great advice. Thinking about doing it. I'm just really shy and afraid of people's judgment. Advices?

This advice from one of our (https://www.withlloyd.com/) recent blog posts is a good perspective: “Stop trying to do what you think everyone wants you to do, follow your gut, listen to your heart, break some rules, and do work you are really proud of.”
