Episodes 6 & 7: Andreas’s Advice for Those Starting Out
By Ronald J. Coleman
Our sixth and seventh episodes—focused on “The Future of Compliance and Legal with a Digital Lens”—feature guest speakers Josh Hogue, Andreas Pyrcek, and Dr. Annie Green. I asked our guests if “a student or someone more junior would like to do what you do or get into your area, what advice would you give them?” Andreas said:
“What I would recommend, typically when we when we consider the career path of a student, focusing, for example, on the legal profession or business economics, etc., even though you’re focused on a certain track, be open minded. Take a look at what’s happening left and right. Understand what are the trends and try to gather those kinds of information in the things you really like. When I take a look back on my career, I was always focusing on core compliance and with digital transformation, I was very open minded to see what kind of opportunities are opening up there. Also as a legal compliance practitioner, you have to take a look at how does education work in your company? How can you convince people to do the right thing and not be on the dark side of compliance. Be very open minded and expand the knowledge also in areas where you haven’t studied, and then you will be more successful.”
