Pursuing a career in science, business or in a professional field? “Always believe in yourself that you can achieve your goals,” Associate Professor Lim encourages. Here are her pointers for new researchers/management trainees:

1) “Your time belongs to your lab/office, not your own. Always put on your professional best when you step into the workplace.”

2) “Your first big breakthrough research paper/business proposal will take longer than your think! Don’t always expect immediate results but aim to work steadily towards your goal.”

3) “Readjust your research/management focus to carve out a niche for yourself, whereby you’re only one of a few experts, if not the only one.”
